Entering and scaling in the federal market is painful, expensive, and risky for private sector tech companies. So, many steer clear. In failing to adopt commercial technology, the government wastes billions of dollars on maintaining outdated technology that doesn’t work well.
Dcode became real the night that Meagan Metzger, founder and CEO, emailed 500 venture capitalists to say, “We can make the federal market easy for tech companies.” The response was overwhelming, and only one or two people told us to go away.
As Dcode’s acceleration program gained momentum and government leaders got involved to meet dozens of emerging tech companies, federal agencies began asking us to show their teams how to better bring in new solutions. Now, we also offer a full suite of solutions for both tech companies and government leaders.
We’re tackling the problem from both sides to advance government into the future, and we hope you’ll join our community. Mentor a tech company. Apply to our acceleration program. Bring innovation training to your organization. Keep up with our monthly newsletter, and enjoy our events that bring our community together.
