WASHINGTON, D.C. — Dcode, a government-focused technology accelerator, announced a new program for 6-10 companies delivering products that support mobility and the Internet of Things. The program aims to increase the speed at which government adopts these emerging technologies.
The selective three-month program will provide companies with expert-led curriculum and strategic planning that covers key insights and guidance for entering the federal market. The program also includes meetings with over 25 federal agencies and over 75 industry experts, who guide participating companies through the maze of rules and regulations.
“Mobile solutions and technologies that support the Internet of Things are critical for the government to stay current with the public’s expectations,” said Dcode founder Meagan Metzger. “IoT can dramatically improve how the federal government delivers benefits, responds to emergencies, and manages its physical assets,” said Metzger.
The security of IoT devices and data as well as the software that ensures manageable and practical output are core to adoption within government. Dcode is looking for companies that provide each of these IoT and mobility applications: devices, software, and security.
The program has two tracks for companies of different stages:
- Startup track for companies with $2 to $14M in revenue and/or funding
- Emerging growth track for companies with $14 to $250M in revenue and/or funding
Dcode’s cohort program is designed for companies with some traction in the federal market but still in the early stages of standing up a government practice. The program also serves companies with established commercial success that are new to the federal government and looking to achieve scale and success quickly.
