FedSales Bootcamp FAQ

You can expect to spend 2-4 hours per week across curriculum and live events.
 

Bootcamp is open to anyone from your team who will benefit from understanding the federal sales process. This might be your CEO (especially in cases where there isn't a dedicated fed sales lead), sales resources, and marketing.

Absolutely!
 
Bootcamp is great for your new-to-gov team members, even if you have some seasoned federal folks in place already.
 

You'll come away from bootcamp with a much deeper understanding of the federal sales process, enabling you to focus your efforts on the right places, guide your buyer, and grow sales. We expect that you'll overhaul your federally-facing marketing materials based on the feedback you receive from our experts and that you'll be able to better structure your go-to-market strategy.

The federal market is a beast. We will give you a good understanding of the topics you need in order to be successful in messaging your tech, finding opportunities, guiding the buyer, and staying out of trouble. We won't get deep into the weeds but will focus more on breadth.

Here are selected wins that attendees of previous bootcamps have listed: 

  • Deepened understanding of the federal market
  • Companies have identified new use cases they hadn't previously considered, opening up new agency targets and contracting opportunities
  • Mentors have connected companies with target agencies they had been trying to reach
  • Companies have fully overhauled their federal-facing 2-pagers, which in turn helped them close meetings they'd be tying to set up for month.

Nope! Bootcamp is a one-time $5,500 fee paid at the time of application.

You'll retain online access to the learning materials and our community platform for one year. The community is a great place to connect with other tech companies, as well as tapping into our mentor network to keep progressing in Federal!

Yes! Several VC firms have sponsored their companies to attend past Bootcamps. Please contact us for more information.
