We took some time to get Avantika’s thoughts on the following:
Three pieces of advice for growing govcons:
- Always be ambitious
- Business is meant to be grown
- Don’t get comfortable in your own zone
What/Where is the best resource for growing your network?
The best resource for growing the network for me has been word of mouth referrals as a consultant. When you do good work, people trust you and recommend you, so person to person or business to business referrals have been my biggest resource.
What is your “hot take” for finding success in your industry?
It is important to make mistakes. You don’t learn if you keep winning. Yes, it’s obviously great to win, but making mistakes and losing on a few bids gives you the best experience for long-term success.
What is the most surprising experience you’ve had working in the govcon community?
What surprised me in this industry when I first started was how close-knit and small it really is, despite having large behemoth companies and small mom and pop shops. It seems like the same usual suspects intersect at various points, and it’s a very good community overall. Reputation actually matters, don’t burn bridges, and collaboration is the way to go…even with competitors.
