In the federal arena, co-innovation allows agencies to partner and create innovative solutions and strategies that meet mission goals. By partnering with small businesses, like Colossal, agencies can collaborate on cutting edge solutions that help boost performance levels and drive down operation costs. Co-innovating can also lead to increased productivity, agility, and overall synergy.

We always try to elevate the mission of our customers, and government needs good small, service-disabled businesses to help achieve these goals.”
