What’s GovConHacks all about?
Procurement Readiness & Strategy SMEs
GovConHacks is exactly what it sounds like—hacks to help you thrive in the government contracting marketplace. GovConHacks began life as a humble hashtag on social media. Its creator, Ashley Duwel, wanted to share her knowledge about GovCon with small businesses trying to get ahead in the industry.
Since then, GovConHacks has become much more than a hashtag. It’s become a central hub for government contractors to learn and grow and seek help with their strategies.

Maybe you don’t have a business development team. No matter which situation you’re in, we’re here to help any way we can.
