FAQ

You Asked. We Answered!

  • What types of programs do you offer?

    We offer four types of programs:

    1) Free Federal Accelerator Workshop (Introductory)
    2) Federal Business Accelerator Program (Foundational)
    3) Federal Partnerships Marketplace Program (Intermediate)
    4) Industry Power Learning Program (Advanced)

    Our foundational Federal Business Accelerator program is designed for you to work affordably, remotely, and part-time to help you achieve your goal of establishing and growing your federal government business practice. This Federal Business Accelerator Program is included in the Federal Partnerships Marketplace Program as well as the Industry Power Learning Program.

  • 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. We also train companies to place consultants at subcontracting and prime contracting companies. Our program also helps companies learn how to become subcontractors and prime contractors.

  • 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, self-paced, digital, video-based, delivered 24 x 7, 365 days, and available globally. Our program is designed for you to work affordably, remotely, and part-time to help you achieve your goal of establishing and growing your federal government business practice.

  • 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 and grow business with Western governments and even to improve their performance with their national governments.

  • How much equity do you take in companies?

    We do NOT invest or take equity or warrants in the companies we work with. We firmly believe that taking equity increases the complexity of our partnership and limits us to startups with a certain corporate structure. Additionally, taking equity may also leave out early-stage entrepreneurs, home-based businesses, minority businesses, and small businesses from securing access to the Federal Business Accelerator. So, we are strictly a fee-based service at the foundational level. At the intermediate and advanced levels, we are a fee plus (5%) share of the revenues business model. The singular focus of the Federal Business Accelerator is to help our program participants establish and build a US federal government practice.

  • What share of revenues do you normally take?

    Our revenue share arrangements are typically for our Federal Marketplace and Industry Powered Learning Programs and are 5% of the sales achieved either directly to the government or indirectly 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. Videos are jointly hosted and marketed with other companies in the Federal Marketplace and typically require 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 indirectly through the efforts of any of our partners including our distributors, resellers, contractors, and service providers network.

    Once you apply 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. This program is for funded and/or revenue-generating companies in excess of $1M annually.

    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 created in partnership with industry leaders with its own landing page and educational video curriculum targeting government 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 industry partner. For more information about this program visit the program description page and then send a formal application. This program is for funded and/or revenue-generating companies in excess of $5M annually.

  • 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 at your company using your 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.
