Eastern Foundry Announces Strategic Partnership With GovTribe

New Tool Provides Easy Access To Market Intelligence

October 17th, 2016, Crystal City VA- Eastern Foundry is thrilled to announce its strategic partnership with Arlington-based company, GovTribe. GovTribe is a business development  platform built by government contractors for government contractors, and provides the data and tools necessary to succeed in the industry using a clean and simple format.

Building and executing a sales pipeline in the federal space has always been difficult.There are  thousands of opportunities to research, hundreds of partners to vet, and key information spread across multiple government sites. As such, it’s hard to cut through the distractions and make sure valuable business development resources are effectively deployed. The good news is it’s getting easier. In fact, in FY2015, 25.75% of prime contracts were allocated to small business, and as more tools become readily available that number will begin to increase. With GovTribe, Eastern Foundry members will have enhanced insight into their market segment and will be able to tackle government business development like never before while helping to boost market confidence in small business.

“We’re happy to bring an innovative platform like GovTribe to our contracting community,” said Geoff Orazem, co-founder of Eastern Foundry. “With companies constantly struggling to enter the federal contracting space, we’re always looking for the best ways to disrupt the antiquated process of winning contracts.”

GovTribe is built with modern technology and emphasizes affordability and ease of use above all else. Contractor’s time and money are precious resources. The GovTribe platform is designed to quickly and easily provide critical insights and help businesses of all sizes maximize their sales process. Members will be able to easily explore opportunities, research spending history all the way back to 2002, and seamlessly collaborate on pipelines with internal and external team members.

“We are excited about our new partnership with Eastern Foundry,” said Nate Nash, chief executive officer of GovTribe. "Both companies have a shared commitment to supporting government contractors through affordable business solutions and we look forward to collaborating to provide our customers with additional capabilities to support their success."

GovTribe subscriptions will be offered to Eastern Foundry members at a reduced price, making it the most affordable platform for your small business. For members of Eastern Foundry who would like to take advantage of this offer, please reach out to Kathleen.
