What Members Have to Say:


The primary issue with having a small team is capacity. If there is a staff absence it is felt more strongly than it would be in a larger company. It can also limit the volume of work, special tasks you can take on, or even the bids you can respond to. The Amalgamation allows small businesses to stay small and specialize while building teams to meet the extensive scopes often required for government contracts.

~Simone Robinson, Public Participation Partners


The past six months of our firm’s success since joining The Amalgamation are evident of its far-reaching goals to open opportunities for small, underserved businesses; six major contract wins (each over 100K) for our firm since The Amalgamation’s exceptional advisement to our team, even as The Amalgamation continually works to gain access to other capacity-building opportunities for our underserved small businesses. Bottom Line-The Amalgamation system works!

~ Steve Longoria, Aanko Technologies, Inc.


Getting government contracts as a small business is hard. The Amalgamation gets that. Having their support, I've met new proposal partners and responded to RFPs I wouldn't have ordinarily.

~Bronlea Mishler, Bronlea M Consulting
