Dcode
for Tech

The U.S. government spends tens of billions of dollars on tech each year, yet still struggles to find the best emerging tech companies. For tech companies, entering and scaling in the federal market is expensive, time intensive, and risky.

Dcode works with both the tech industry and government to bring top tech onto contract and into government missions. Our acceleration program provides private sector tech companies of all stages and sizes a simpler, faster, and more streamlined way to scale in the federal market.
