Where businesses, opportunity, and government connect.
For companies with an interest in selling to the government, Vermont APEX Accelerator (formerly known as VT PTAC) is the place to begin. Vermont APEX Accelerator counselors provide the in-depth understanding of complex documentation and product specifications that most businesses lack. By proactively searching for appropriate opportunities for each business’s needs, our procurement counselors are indispensable partners in government procurement.
Vermont APEX Accelerator counselors take the time to understand you and your business. The more we know about what makes you distinct, the more we can achieve with you. We match businesses with relevant contact opportunities, target a list of buyers and deliver access to critical research and development products. Our procurement counselors have the technical knowledge to support your business through registrations and certifications. Our understanding of the solicitation process enables you to bid on government contracts effectively and efficiently.
Through every phase of your government contracting experience, Vermont APEX Accelerator is an aid and an asset.
Our mission is to serve as the axis for existing and new business to strengthen the defense industrial base by accelerating innovation, fostering ingenuity, and establishing resilient and diverse supply chains. Federal spending flows to Vermont businesses through both direct contract recipients and through their subcontractors.
