Leaving the military and deciding to offer your services to the government can be rewarding. Knowing how to navigate the government contracting space is essential. This section will cover opportunities for small and veteran-owned businesses to pursue government contracts. We will provide you an insight of what to expect if you are looking to work as a government contractor, advantages and disadvantages of doing business with the Government, the process to register to do business with the Government, where and how to look for opportunities, basic strategies for new businesses, and how teaming and subcontracting work on federal contracts.

Learn from those who have walked in your shoes. Garth Arevalo is CEO of Lukos. Lukos is one of the most successful small businesses in the military special operations market. Prior to co-founding Lukos, he served on active duty for 12 years in the Air Force and at Special Operations Command as a Contracting Officer and then served another 8 years in the Air Force Reserve.
