Protégé Program

The C200 Protégé Program is an exceptional program designed to help women entrepreneurs grow their businesses through education, networking, and member support.

In this 12-month Protégé Program, women entrepreneurs will uplift and invest in each other’s success, with support from our C200 members who engage in the education and mentoring of these female business leaders focused on scaling their businesses to over $20 millionWhat makes this program unique is the combination of a strong facilitator and access to successful corporate and entrepreneurial P&L leaders who have experience scaling businesses and tackling diverse challenges. 

Qualified candidates are women with annual revenues up to $20 million who are committed to growing their businesses.

“C200 and the Protégé Program have enriched my business beyond anything I could have possibly imagined. For me, it was the first time anyone sat me down in a rigorous and disciplined manner and taught me about business and it was remarkable.”

– Mia Galison, President, eeBoo
