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.
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.
