Accelerating Developer Tools and Platforms in Government

A guest blog by Andrew McMahon, Dcode42

Digital transformation – changing processes and information into a digital form has been a popular trend. It is causing changes in industries from automotive to healthcare to government.

To be able to move forward in digital transformation and the DevOps space, organizations can hire people with more modern technology skill sets. And, in order to support this new civil servant, the appropriate tools and technologies should be in place.

Dcode42 incubates emerging technology companies, providing them with what they need to succeed in the federal market through our comprehensive accelerator programs. We recently announced our newest cohort that focuses on delivering the most promising developer tools and platforms to the government.

By bringing together Dcode42 and AWS, we offer a powerful launching pad for technology companies of all sizes to succeed quickly. Companies accepted into this three-month program receive concentrated guidance and support on crucial aspects of entering the federal market, including:

  • Courses with renowned industry subject matter experts on the inner workings of government – from marketing and sales to compliance, procurement, pricing and more;
  • Exclusive briefings with key government buyers and industry leaders;
  • Access to industry specialists and mentors for expert guidance and networking connections;
  • Exposure to an extensive partner network of large and small partners to increase revenue opportunities; and
  • Hands on strategic planning and go-to-market support to maximize your resources.

Along with the programming that Dcode42 companies receive, this particular cohort will have the opportunity to work with AWS public sector teams to further speed their time to market. Companies leave the program with tactical plans, close integration with AWS teams, and, in many cases, immediate opportunities for revenue.

Join The Digital Transformation Movement

The Dcode42 program is for established companies with commercial traction. The program has two tracks for companies of different sizes: the startups track, for companies with $1-14M in revenue and/or funding; and the emerging growth track, for companies with $14-150M in revenue and/or funding. Our program is designed for two types of companies:

  • Those with some traction in the federal market, but who are still developing a government practice. These companies may have a few contracts or a dedicated federal team with prior experience.
  • Companies new to the federal government looking to succeed more quickly who are not sure the best approach to take.

The deadline to apply for the upcoming cohort is July 17th. Companies that wish to apply can visit or find more information at
