Matchmaker, Matchmaker … Make Me A GovCon Teaming Match [Podcast]
March 21, 2016
In the following podcast interview, Kate Coleman, a Senior Manager within SC&H Group’s Government Contracting Advisory team, is joined by Stephanie Alexander, President of BOOST LLC, and Katie Bilek, Senior Vice President at Republic Capital Access, to discuss govmates, a new matchmaking service for government contractors.
In today’s complex government contracting arena, small businesses face many challenges when it comes to finding the right teaming opportunities.
Similarly, for larger contractors, it is often difficult to find smaller contractors with the right specialized capabilities to help secure and service new government business opportunities.
How can large and small contractors effectively connect in ways that are beneficial for everyone?
Stephanie and Katie recently created the ideal solution with the launch of govmates, a free business development service for small and emerging government contractors. The new service matches government contractors seeking teaming partners. Contractors simply fill out a profile, and govmates takes care of the rest.
This free service is becoming the fastest growing, go-to tool for large and small companies looking to generate additional revenue. Why? govmates provides granular information about each company, which includes past performance, contract vehicles, capabilities, and set-aside statuses. The organization also hosts open house networking sessions with large companies who want to meet qualified small business teaming partners.
Stephanie and Katie founded govmates based on their extensive financing and business consulting experience within the government contracting arena. They saw an opportunity for the GovCon community to make meaningful teaming connections and win new business. They are passionate about govmates, and operate this service in addition to their full-time professions.
Govmates is an ideal solution for many of SC&H Group’s government contracting clients, who are continually looking for new ways to grow their businesses in today’s post-sequestration and LPTA climate.
