MFStrategies and Omega Accelerator have partnered to find and fund the next generation of government technology startups. Individually, we have raised over $75 million for companies and clients to support their goals. Together, we are bringing our unique backgrounds and funding model to the GovTech market.

 

Running out of money causes over 80% of business failures, but less than 1% of businesses receive capital from outside investors. We believe a company should never fail because it hasn’t had adequate time (or funding) to prove itself.

Omega works toward company success, and higher returns on investment, by helping entrepreneurs find the funding they need, providing hands-on business consultation services, and assisting with product strategy and market assessments. We keep participation fees low so we can help more founders without worrying about how our costs will affect the bottom line.

Market

Governments are facing increasing demand for fast and convenient services as well as a widening technology gap between the public and private sectors. As a result, governments are turning to private companies for efficient and affordable solutions.

There are over 60,000 state and local governments in the United States spending tens of billions of dollars to provide services to constituents. In 2018 non-defense federal government IT spending alone was $53 billion - a 165% increase since 2000.

Innovative companies focusing on challenges like energy distribution, emergency response communications, and simply billing for trash pick-up have a huge opportunity in this space.

Strategy

Investments in Omega are used for staffing, marketing, investment capital, and working capital. We simplify the angel investment process by screening opportunities for you.

Our staff has decades of experience managing investments and working with elected officials and government staff. We apply this knowledge by working directly with our portfolio companies to strive for extraordinary returns on investment.

Omega’s revenue comes from ownership in portfolio companies, participation fees, and sponsorship fees. Your ROI comes from the proven success of matching expert staff, innovative companies, and reliable funding through every stage of growth.
