I have been an executive in the outdoor industry for over thirty years, with a prior career as a US Marine Corps Infantry Officer. I founded Allen Consulting Services to help Outdoor Industry enterprises understand how to do business with the US government and military, and assist them with assessing opportunities. My experience includes:
To provide clients with actionable advice on how to successfully enter the government market for individual clothing and equipment
Everything starts with having a product or service that has value to a government agency or military service. My expertise is in clothing and personal equipment. I can help your company determine if your product is one that may be successful in competing with other products in its category.
Within the government and military services there are departments that manage R & D of products to meet specific end use and operational requirements. Understanding how to work with these offices helps you identify opportunities that are the best fit for your capabilities and products.
Working with government bureaucracy can be daunting, but selling products to the government can be very profitable. I can help you navigate the complex government procurement process.
