Federal Business Accelerator Program

ScaleUP USA Federal Startup ACCELERATOR

By Nitin Pradhan

Introducing ScaleUP USA Federal Startup Accelerator.

ScaleUP USA is a Washington DC metro region-based federal startup accelerator focused on growing startups and businesses of all sizes and shapes by helping them learn how to win and execute federal government opportunities in the US$10T, a recession-proof, US federal marketplace. Nitin Pradhan, ScaleUP USA founder, is a former Obama-Biden appointee and US federal government CIO.

Who Should Join the Federal Startup Accelerator?

IEEE members working in academia, research, industry, startups, home businesses, small businesses, established businesses, and governments in the fields of electrical engineering, computer science, telecommunications, information technology, robotics, AI, power and energy, biomedical engineering, aerospace and defense, consumer electronics, transportation, and other high-tech fields are encouraged to join the ScaleUP USA Federal Startup Accelerator. The four-stage program requires no equity dilution and can be completed part-time and remotely.

The US Federal Government Opportunities.

The US federal government is a marketplace of limitless potential. In 2021, the US federal government spent around US$7.5 trillion on grants and fixed charges and an additional US$1.1 trillion on contracts and supplies. The federal government also directly or indirectly employs over 9 million federal employees, contractors, consultants, researchers, and advisors – nationwide. Yet, unfortunately, for those who do or plan to do business with the government, there is no formal learning process to visualize, strategize, plan, implement, and continuously improve their federal business growth and execution strategy. Many muddle their way through, leading by trial and error, and often fail. Therefore, winners keep winning, and losers keep losing.

Winning Federal Opportunities!

ScaleUP USA therefore, designed the four-stage Federal Startup Accelerator Program after significant research, brainstorming, pilots, and interviews with government and industry professionals. The program is delivered digitally to desktop or mobile devices, is always on, highly scalable, low investment, very affordable, requires no equity dilution, and operates across America and even globally.  This program provides roadmaps, best practices, processes, procedures, methods, references, case studies, and practicums for how to establish, grow, win, administer, and execute business with the US federal government.
