GovCon Gold Rush: Feed the Machine™

Application Page


We have completed our first year of GovCon Gold Rush™ and together, we have learned so much. Hooray!


We've had a lot of amazing learning experiences as well as federal contracting wins for small businesses participating in the program. One of the primary things we've learned with Gold Rush participants is that students mostly need support with bidding on Federal solicitations.


Moving forward into 2022 and beyond, all students will have the option to enroll in the evolved version called FirstFedBid™. FirstFedBid™ is a small business incubator that is solely focused on supporting established small business to start confidently responding to Federal bids for their business.
