Transitioning from Small to Large
for Gov/Con Leaders
This program helps CEOs and their senior teams in the GovCon space make the transition from small business setaside contracts to full-and-open competition upon graduation for their 8a and small business status.
The unique six-month program creates the opportunity for a select cohort to work with 12 CEO Guest Speakers who have successfully led their companies through the transition. Each month, two critical aspects of preparing for graduation are addressed. Then, participants work with a Newport facilitation team to create their company’s specific graduation plan. At the end of the program, each company will have created a tailored graduation plan serving as a roadmap for the years up-to and immediately following graduation.

Each cohort is built around a maximum of 15 companies, with 2 attendees from each. A CEO and her/his plus-one (COO, CFO or Chief of Staff typically) meet one morning each month with the cohort to get to higher ground and work “on” the business, guided by the Guest Speakers who have successfully led their companies through the transition and Subject Matter Experts to assist in development of their company’s specific graduation plan. At the end of the 6-month program, each company will have created a tailored graduation plan serving as a roadmap for the years up-to and immediately following graduation.
The cost to participate is $5,000 for the first company executive and $3,000 for the second executive.
This program is designed for GovCon CEOs and their C-Suite teams planning to transition from competing as a small business to moving into full and open competition. Benefits include:
