New Hampshire APEX Accelerator

As the largest purchaser of goods and services in the world, the United States government is a customer businesses of all sizes should consider pursuing. Hundreds of New Hampshire companies meet that demand, supplying the smallest components needed to propel rockets, to landscaping and snowplowing at government facilities.

In New Hampshire, government contracts and subcontracts last year totaled over $4 billion.

Doing business with the federal government and state agencies is more complicated than the typical B2B relationship. Fairness and transparency require processes and protocols that take time and can be daunting.

The New Hampshire APEX Accelerator (formerly NH PTAC) helps navigate all facets of government contracting, offering free, confidential assistance to businesses of all sizes. The experienced staff works with a range of companies, from multi-national corporations involved in aerospace and defense systems, to a catering company that provides meals for the NH National Guard.

NH APEX offers training for businesses just getting started in federal procurement, to those needing specialized information about federal labor laws, Women-Owned Small Business Certification (WOSB), HUBZones, and cybersecurity compliance. It also sponsors Matchmakers, which bring together small businesses and the Prime contractors who need them to fulfill their federal contract requirements.
