The Small Business Administration (SBA) started accepting applications for the new All Small Mentor-Protégé Program (ASMPP) in October 2016, but SBA has seen a surge in applications in 2017.

Under the ASMPP, any small business—including Historically Underutilized Business Zone (or HUBZone) small businesses, 8(a) small businesses, veteran-owned and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses (VOSBs/SDVOSBs), woman-owned and economically disadvantaged woman-owned small businesses (WOSBs/EDWOSBs)—may enter into an agreement with a large business under which the large business will provide mentorship and assistance. In return, the large and small businesses are permitted to joint venture to perform federal small business set-aside contracts.

Previously, we provided a mid-year report on fast figures about the ASMPP that both large and small businesses need to know. Here is our year-end update to those figures:

356  SBA reports that, as of Dec. 1, 2017, it has approved 356 different ASMPP agreements.
1,116 As of Dec. 1, 2017, there have been more than 1,116 views of the new SCORE-SBA ASMPP Webinar.
16 SBA reports that, as of Dec. 8, 2017, 16 8(a) Mentor-Protégé Program participants transferred to the new ASMPP.
64 SBA reports that at least 64 of the 356 SBA-approved ASMPP agreements were approved under the protégé’s secondary—rather than primary—North American Industry Classification System (or NAICS) code.
72 SBA reports that, as of Dec. 8, 2017, 72 ASMPP applications were declined by SBA.
112 SBA reports that at least 112 of the ASMPP participants are 8(a) firms.
