Eastern Foundry is a new Crystal City-based incubator catering to the needs of small business federal contractors. The inspiration for Eastern Foundry came from a frustration its founders experienced breaking into the government contracting space. Skill and hard work was not enough to overcome the byzantine barriers to entry. From registering companies, to applying for veteran-owned designation, finding open solicitations, and navigating the arcane world of proposal writing, the administrative side of competing for government contracts can be bewildering.

Eastern Foundry aims to simplify this landscape by creating a complete business incubation ecosystem to foster success including top professional service providers, coaches, mentors, and BD support teams to provide daily structured and personal coaching.

Eastern Foundry's mission is to:

  • Help small tech businesses succeed in the government contracting space
  • Help system integrators find qualified partners
  • Help federal agencies meet their small business targets
