The Protégé Program focuses on high-potential, women entrepreneurs (nominated and screened by C200 members) with revenues in the $5 million to $15 million range. These women are interested in and committed to growing their businesses to the next level, and aspire to become C200 members. The goals of the program are to support the participants in their journeys to grow their businesses, to expand their networks, and to “pay it forward” to future generations. Over a 24-month period, this program includes 27 meetings, four of which (two each year) are in person, with the remainder conducted via webinars and conference calls. Metrics are in place for each of the stakeholders and the program itself.
Protégés are matched with one C200 member who serves as a mentor/advisor, four times annually. In addition, protégés participate in educational sessions led by C200 members and select outside consultants whose real-world expertise provides a candid and useful set of courses. As a peer group, the protégés also support one another, hold each other accountable and all invest in the success of each individual and the group as a whole. Protégés will share the cost of the program, which is funded by C200 member donations and sponsors. If you are interested in contributing to support the Protégé Program, please contact Meghan McRae at (312) 255-0296, ext. 105 or email@example.com
