Lessons from the frontlines: Entering the defense industry as a SaaS company

The thought of selling to any government agency—let alone the Department of Defense (DoD)—as a software as a service (SaaS) company is enough to make anyone tremble.

Challenges like finding a government sponsor, securing contracts, and accrediting your app in a legacy industry like defense is tough, putting it mildly. Yet hundreds of U.S.-based technology companies pursue federal contracts annually, with plenty more that have the potential to transform this industry for the better.

In this webinar with Dan Wilbricht, GM, Public Sector at Devo, Jade Baranski, CEO of Mobilize, and Tyler Sweatt, CRO of Second Front Systems, you’ll learn what it takes to enter and scale within the defense market.

Watch this discussion to hear lessons learned, best practices and more to help accelerate your foray into the defense industry.
