Derek James is an MBA Graduate that fell into the world of winning government contracts almost by mistake. At the age of 26, he began working for a small government contractor and started learning how to win contracts with the US Federal Government. In a very "sink or swim" environment, he barely escaped being fired in his first 3 months. Over the next few years, Derek James would go on to be very successful winning government contracts, securing over 32 Federal Contract actions worth over $15M with various US Government Agencies. Once he learned that his story is not-so-typical, Derek started helping Small Business owners to start winning contracts.
Today, Derek is passionate about teaching his strategy to win contracts (the GovKid Method) to small business owners that want to learn how to sell to the Federal Government. Derek helps small businesses in many different capacities, depending on their needs, and their ultimate goals for their business. He remains focused on publishing books and other learning materials that can help small businesses expedite their path to winning government contracts.
