Are you ready to register to start bidding government contracts?

"I spent 9 months doing the wrong things to register my contracting business. In this one short course, I gained everything I needed to know to register my business. I wish I had this sooner!" - Student Review

From the ages of 26-29, Derek James won 32 US Federal Government contracts worth over $15M. He did this with no prior experience and with very minimal guidance working for a woman-owned small business.

"I started out by creating resources to help small business owners win their first government contract. After a while, I learned there is a huge barrier to entry by just getting registered. I created this course to get people to get in the game so they at least have a chance at winning government contracts for their business. I've seen so-called consultants charge thousands for this process. It's my intention to try to put them out of business with this course". - Derek James

Derek James

Derek James is an MBA Graduate that fell into the world of winning government contracts almost by mistake. At the age of 26, he began working for a small government contractor and started learning how to win contracts with the US Federal Government. In a very "sink or swim" environment, he barely escaped being fired in his first 3 months. Over the next few years, Derek James would go on to be very successful winning government contracts, securing over 32 Federal Contract actions worth over $15M with various US Government Agencies. Once he learned that his story is not-so-typical, Derek started helping Small Business owners to start winning contracts.

Today, Derek is passionate about teaching his strategy for winning contracts (the GovKid Method) to small business owners that want to learn how to sell to the Federal Government. Derek helps small businesses in many different capacities, depending on their needs and their ultimate goals for their business. Derek remains focused on consulting and creating resources that can help small businesses expedite their path to winning government contracts.
