The US federal government is the world’s largest marketplace. In 2020, The US federal government spent around $6.8 trillion on grants and fixed charges and an additional $1.1 trillion on contracts and supplies. The federal government also directly or indirectly employs over 9 million federal employees, contractors, and others. Just to compare the entire venture capital industry in the US invested approximately $60B in the US in 2018.
Yet, less than 1% of all the 30+ million businesses in the US ever registered to do business with the US federal government! Even lesser number of organizations know how to do business with the "Feds." The result is that the "winners" keep "winning" and the "losers" keep losing!
Do you want to win or win more? Are you doing or planning to do business with the federal government? Don't waste time, effort, and resources doing the wrong things at the wrong time! Learn the methods and best practices, seasoned professionals use to establish and grow their federal supplier or contracting business!
First, the federal opportunity is very big. You can build a sizable business just working with the feds! Plus, unlike the state and local governments, the Federal Government procurement regulations while a little complicated are standardized for civilian and defense and once you learn them, are applicable to all agencies.
The feds pay on time and conduct work across the entire nation. They have many set-aside programs for various classes of businesses. Finally, the Federal Government can act as a hedge for economic downturns like the financial crisis in 2008. In such times the Federal Government increases spending through stimulus programs. For all these reasons, you must have the Federal Government as one of your major customers. Get started now.
Unfortunately, for those who do or plan to do business with the government, there is no formal learning process to vision, strategize, plan, implement, and continuously improve their federal business growth strategy. Many therefore muddle their way and lead by trial and error and often fail. We, therefore, designed the Federal Business Accelerator Program after significant research, brainstorming, pilots, and interviews with government and industry professionals.
The program is delivered digitally to desktop or mobile devices, is always on, highly scalable, low investment, very affordable, requires no equity dilution, and operates across America.
ScaleUP USA’s goal is to increase the US business participation rate in the federal government contracts and grants from less than 1% today to 2% in the future and thereby increase the competitiveness, efficiency, and effectiveness of the Federal Government.
