The Amalgamation

The Amalgamation

Government contracting isn’t fair. We’re here to change that.

The Amalgamation is an ecosystem of underutilized small businesses reimagining government contracting by fostering equitable partnerships. We use an innovative, collaborative approach that elevates solopreneurs, micros, and small businesses, decreases reliance on large primes, and removes many of the barriers they face when seeking government contracts.

A word from our founder


I’m here to invite you to a revolution.

The Amalgamation is a collective of small disadvantaged businesses banding together to overcome the common hurdles and promote equitable partnerships in government contracting.

We convert random rows on a vendor spreadsheet to a community of mentors and collaborators. We help smalls identify opportunities, find proposal partners, and avoid predatory behavior.

And the revolution?

We challenge the assumption that smalls have to be subcontractors by building full proposal teams of DBEs.

Whether you’re a new small business owner curious about government contracting or a 20-year pro looking for an innovative approach, we’ve got your back.

If you believe in the power of a collective, you’ve found your people. We’re glad you’re here!
