You Asked. We Answered!

  • Are your programs for the federal government only?

    No. While our focus is the US federal government, we encourage businesses to use our program to start working with the governments first at a local and state level to gain confidence, expertise, and experience and then advance onto the larger and more complex federal sector.

  • Do you provide services in Washington DC only?

    No. While we are based out of the Washington DC metro region, our programs are typically online, digital, video-based, delivered 24 x 7, 365 days, and available globally.

  • Do you accept foreign companies in the program?

    Yes. While the US federal government primarily focuses on US-based companies, our program can be used by foreign companies to learn how to work with Western governments and even to improve their performance with their national governments.

  • How much equity do you take in companies?

    We typically do NOT take any equity in the companies we work with. Our arrangement includes payment of the upfront cost and sometimes a share of the revenues generated.

  • What share of revenues do you normally take?

    Our revenue share arrangements are typically for our Federal Marketplace and Industry Power Learning programs and are 5% of the sales achieved either directly to the government or through any of our partners including our distributors, resellers, contractors, and service providers network.

  • What is the Federal Marketplace Program?

    The Federal Marketplace is a video-based program to educate buyers on your products and services. It is jointly hosted with other companies in the Federal Marketplace and requires an investment of around $5,999 yearly subscription plus a 5% revenue share of the sales either directly to the government due to ScaleUP USA’s introductions or facilitations or through the efforts of any of our partners including our distributors, resellers, contractors and service providers network.

    Once you sign-up for the program, we will contact you via email to guide you through the steps to set up this program including how you can create the most impactful video for your company’s product or service.

    The program auto-renews at the end of the subscription unless canceled through the customer's admin console before it renews.

  • What is the Industry Powered Learning Program?

    The Industry Powered Learning program is an individualized, sophisticated educational program hosted on our site with its own landing page and educational video curriculum targeting buyers, contractors, partners, current and future employees, and preliminary customer training.

    This program typically requires an investment of $60-100K per year plus a 5% revenue share it has the potential to make substantial returns if designed and executed properly by the customer. For more information about this program visit the program description page and then send a formal inquiry through the contact us link below in the footer.

  • Who develops the company videos for the programs?

    Since we want authentic educational videos developed by experts with experience in the field we encourage the client company videos for the Federal Marketplace and the Industry Powered Learning to be developed in-house in the client company using local company expertise. Flashy, marketing-type videos do not generally generate the kind of response customers typically seek from government buyers! Scaleup USA is available to provide guidance on the content and curriculum for such videos.
