VSConsulting is a business development consultancy focused on helping entrepreneurs, companies, and others create successful relationships with the Federal Government or other entities in Washington, D.C. Among its services, VSConsulting helps clients enter new markets, both in the United States and overseas.
These Washington relationships come in many forms. Your firm may want help in marketing a product to government procurement officials. Your association may want to build a grassroots campaign to effect change. Perhaps your company has never operated in the United States or with the Federal Government. Your objectives may have no direct relationship with Government at all, but you want to avoid unforeseen complications as your work goes forward, or you may want to tap into the nexus of companies and interests in Washington.
Through its flexibility and sophisticated understanding of the many aspects of Washington, VSConsulting gives its clients the answer to these and many other questions. Thanks to its principals’ many years of experience in both domestic and international affairs, in and out of government, VSConsulting provides the insights and openings to make any project more viable.
VSConsulting is a non-lobbying consultancy, but through its relationship with Van Scoyoc Associates Inc., Washington’s largest independent lobbying firm, we can also open the door for your firm to develop a comprehensive plan that includes lobbying, along with our other services.
In short, VSConsulting is ready, willing, and able to provide you with all the tools to succeed in a demanding but lucrative market, ranging from strategic business planning, to tactical operations, public affairs, and, through our partner Van Scoyoc Associates Inc., to expert lobbying services.
VSConsulting is typically engaged by clients who need advice and assistance in such endeavors as:
- Doing business with the Federal Government in dynamic fields such as defense, homeland security, energy, and infrastructure sustainability.
- Entering into new markets, whether it is the United States for foreign companies or international markets for U.S-based firms.
