Company Description

Protégé's mission is to democratize access to opportunity by allowing anyone to submit their talent to the best experts in the world for feedback and the chance to become their protégé. We believe that the best talent deserves be discovered, no matter background, family connections, or net worth. Anyone in the world with an internet connection has access to the information and education to break into a career. However, no matter how well you learn and master this or your craft, without the right opportunity to showcase this talent, career progressions stifle. Often, only the few who know someone who has already achieved success are fortunate enough to be positioned to shoot their shot to be able to make it. Protégé changes this.
