Passionate about breaking down barriers between government and private industry, Meagan Metzger founded Dcode42, which helps small and medium sized tech companies break into the federal government market.
In the past two years, Meagan and her team have helped nearly a dozen start up technology companies enter into the government marketplace, spearheading their award of Government Wide Contract Vehicles (GWACS) and enabling several of them to win the largest contracts in company history.
For over ten years she has helped innovative small IT firms establish and grow their government business and is an avid entrepreneur in her own right. Prior to Dcode42, Meagan served as Chief Operating Officer (COO) of a mobile and cloud government products and services company, helping to stand up and grow it by over 200% in its first two years. She previously served as Chief Strategy Officer (CSO) for government IT consulting firm, helping the company grow from $500K in revenue to over $12 million in only two years. The company was placed on Washington Technology’s Fast50 list, as one of the fastest growing small businesses in DC, for three years in a row. Meagan has worked closely with senior leadership across DoD and civilian agencies, providing hands-on support for the execution of multi-million dollar IT programs ($1M – $70M+), with an expertise in IT acquisitions in the Federal space.
Meagan currently serves as a mentor for startups through Washington DC Economic Partnership and Springboard Enterprises, a network of innovators, investors and influencers who are dedicated to building high-growth technology-oriented companies led by women. Meagan also serves at the chair of a Career Advisory Board in the Athletic department at George Washington University, her alma mater, where she was a captain of the nationally ranked Division I gymnastics team.
