Sometimes the best defense is diversified
Simon Everett has been supporting kglobal, a DC-based communications firm, on an innovative grant program aimed at helping defense firms diversify in anticipation of declining defense spending. Two of South Carolina’s jobs agencies – the Department of Employment and Workforce and the Department of Commerce – are sponsoring an initiative to offer business consulting services to companies that will be negatively impacted by Department of Defense budget cuts.
kglobal (a Zenetex company) and Simon Everett have teamed to help these firms by conducting internal business assessments, identifying adjacent markets for targeted business development, and crafting strategic messaging initiatives to reach multiple stakeholder audiences. Our tailored suite of consulting services is helping SC-based defense firms to better understand and manage internal and external factors affecting the success of their approaches to new markets. As a result, South Carolina will improve its economic resilience and the defense sector will retain key capabilities and expertise for future needs.
We look forward to continuing our strategic partnership with kglobal and supporting additional SC firms in their diversification pursuits. To that end, South Carolina is still accepting grant applications. If your business operates in South Carolina and is interested in reaching new markets, just take two easy steps: 1) send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and 2) download the Defense Industry Adjustment Application from Commerce’s website to see if your company qualifies.
