Huckworthy and Boeing Sign Agreement to Enter Department of Defense Mentor-Protégé Program
Washington, DC, August 22, 2016 --( Huckworthy, a HUBZone small business in Washington, DC, and Boeing, acting through its Commercial Satellite Services group, have expanded their relationship to include participation in the US DoD Mentor-Protégé Program. Throughout this three year relationship, Huckworthy will benefit from Boeing’s resources and experience in marketing it’s TRAVELLER products to the US Government marketplace, and Boeing will benefit from Huckworthy’s leading edge communications and power technologies. Out of Boeing’s roughly 6000 suppliers, only two have been accepted to be formally mentored under this program at this time.

Huckworthy’s TRAVELLER line of technology products is highly complementary to Boeing’s range of communications, intelligence and defense product lines. The two companies expect the continued collaboration to lead to new mutual opportunities and improved value for government clients. Through this partnership, both companies can better service government opportunities specifically set aside for small businesses, and Boeing will aid Huckworthy in competing for larger, more complex prime and subcontract awards.
