Our Story

After 20+ years of working in the Federal sector, a few of us EngiNERDs thought we could make GovTech easier, cost effective, and actually work.

Thus, the birth of BizPair. We love to pair up with the best of the best teams and brains in the industry. Simple. No extra bells and whistles. Just what you need -- quickly and affordably.

Whether it's teaming on a proposal to increase PWINs, staff augmentation or direct placement, or our GovTech products, BizPair always has you in mind.
