BOOST was launched in 2012 during the height of sequestration, fiscal cliff, national elections and general uneasiness in the Federal contracting industry. We saw a niche for compliant back office services in the GovCon arena. GovCon compliance is complicated and if you want to be paid by the American taxpayer, you need to know the rules and play by them.
But more importantly, BOOST was founded to support GovCons as they get to the next level. After reinventing the wheel many times and banging our heads against numerous walls, we have learned what works and what doesn’t. We love working with executives who want to see their organization grow and who value advice from those who have “been there, done that.” We want our small clients to outgrow us. We want our large clients to use us when they need us and then call us back for the next project. We want you to sell your business for the multiplier you want. We want you to be successful.
MEET THE EXECUTIVE TEAM
Are You A Good Fit for BOOST?
Are you a commercial company or non-profit?
Trust us, you don’t want to put in the compliance piece that GovCon requires if you don’t have to!
Are you a GovCon looking for the cheapest solution?
We will not be the most expensive consultants, nor will we be the cheapest. If you care only about cost, please try Craigslist or some other website offering. To lower costs, engage someone without GovCon experience. But be prepared to pay twice as much to fix what gets broken and forget passing any Government audits.
Are you a GovCon who just wants data entry?
Our role as consultants, no matter the level of experience, is to provide value. If we aren’t looking for ways to improve your current processes or save you money, then we aren’t doing our job. If you just want us to enter data into software, we aren’t a good fit.
Are you a GovCon who needs lots of wining and dining?
We are a small business with limited funds. If you need to be taken to a sports event every quarter or want an expensive steak dinner every month, we are not your solution. We believe in saving you time and money. We don’t have a lot of either ourselves, so we would rather introduce you to a potential teammate for an opportunity you are interested in, than spend money on activities or swag.
How Do I Get Started?
Simply email us to schedule a time to talk about what you are looking for. We prefer a quick phone call to ensure we are a good fit (again, we are all about saving time and money for all parties). If we are, we will schedule a more in-depth discussion to figure out the most effective and efficient way to help your needs.
BOOST is proud to support the VA Tech Executive MBA Program. Stephanie Alexander serves of the MBA board of advisors to give back after such a positive experience. The VA Tech EMBA program is designed for busy professionals interested in taking their career to the next level. The Program focuses on strategic leadership with an eye on business analytics, innovation, and globalization. The EMBA prepares managers to leverage trends and information in a rapidly changing world.
Stephanie Alexander successfully completed the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Intensive Entrepreneurship Program delivered by Babson’s business experts and peers alongside educational teams who teach the 10,000 Small Businesses program at community colleges across the country. Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses is based on the broadly held view of leading experts that greater access to this combination of education, capital, and support services best addresses barriers to growth for small businesses. 10,000 Small Businesses is guided by an Advisory Council on which Babson President Kerry Healey serves and is co-chaired by Goldman Sachs chairman and CEO Lloyd C. Blankfein, Bloomberg L.P. founder, president and CEO, and 108th Mayor of the City of New York Michael R. Bloomberg, Berkshire Hathaway chairman and CEO Warren Buffett, and the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City’s Dr. Michael Porter. The National Urban League and the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce are also represented on the Advisory Council, among other groups.
