Expand Research and Development and Infrastructure
Government Agencies have already defined their problems and are willing to fund R&D and Infrastructure Improvements. These solutions can align with a company’s technology roadmap.
Find new customers
Government customers are typically stable and long-term. They have problems that reflects the real needs and a potential market.
Can’t commit extensive time and resources
Many organizations are unable to carry out current projects while simultaneously going after new business.
Limited experience writing winning proposals
Government solicitations can be complex, require a lot of organization, and not having prior experience can lower the probability of winning.
Lacking knowledge about FARs
The Federal Acquisition Regulations (FARs) is a complex set of regulations and companies must comply with them. It takes experience and a lot of time to comprehend and be compliant.
Unfamiliarity with the government acquisition process
Government acquisition is not as simple as writing and submitting a proposal. Every agency works on a timeline, has specific goals, and has a method for generating solicitations. Understanding the process is key to winning.
Never partnered with Research organizations
Universities, National Labs, and Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs) do business with the government all the time and it helps to have one of these as your partners.
We had a great experience working with Fedsprout. With their guidance and experience we were able to put together an excellent proposal. Their ability to technically comprehend and tailor the solution was nonpareil. The best part was that we didn’t need to get too much involved and were able to focus on running our startup.

We were initially skeptical about using an outside firm to secure business funding via government programs & grants, but after speaking with Fedsprout we were able to understand that there was a lot we didn’t know about government contracting. Fedsprout also had a very good understanding of both the technical and business aspects of proposal writing. We would recommend using them for science and engineering related funding opportunities.
