About Us

KoBE offers expert consultation services to assist building small businesses in their objective to create mutually beneficial relationships with the U.S. Government, the largest purchaser of goods and services in the world. To streamline this process, KoBE has organized the necessary developmental factors into three distinct functional areas: Government Procurement Advocacy, Cross-Industry Networking, and Information Dispersion.

Our Mission

We help individuals and organizations become future industry leaders that successfully grow within the Public Sector.
Established in 1996, KoBE Government Contracting Alliance is a 501 (c)(6) nonprofit organization providing guidance and mentorship to businesses and trade professionals in their efforts to gain access to the public sector. As a small business incubator, we focus on connecting our members with the necessary tools and instruments they need to grow and thrive in the Public Sector. Over two decades, we have built a community-like network of over 200 members uniquely tailored to this task.

Functional Areas

Government Procurement Advocacy

We understand that government can be an overwhelming step. We do our best to make sure each business is prepared for what is to come by:

  • Guiding small firms through the process of acquiring Small Business Association (SBA) certifications, including 8(a)
  • Hosting government procurement informational seminars
  • Providing individuals with experience in a professional work environment to prepare them for government employment
Cross Industry Networking

A large portion of our network is located in the Washington D.C. area where more than 80% of federal procurements are made. We utilize this network to bolster your existing strengths. Furthermore, we:

  • Maintain a network of over 200 business partners
  • Facilitate forums for members to share experiences that will expand the general contracting knowledge base
  • Offer interns a chance to garner real world experience within our business network
