Tony Cole, founder of SenezCo and current Vice President of U.S. Operations, shared that working with the Kentucky APEX Accelerator has been vital to the company’s entrance into the sphere of government procurement.
“When I started this business in May 2023,” Tony said, “I had included chasing U.S. Federal Government work as part of our business plan. I tried to get registered on the SAM.gov website but wasn’t able to complete the process. The website and Federal Contracting space was new to me, and I wanted to get into the process, but I wasn’t having any luck.
“I came across the KYPTAC site, now KY APEX Accelerator, while searching for help and support. This turned out to be a blessing and it began a year-long relationship with them. Eric and his team not only helped me finalize my registration with SAM.gov, but they also helped in developing my statement of capabilities and introduced me to various small business advocates.
“I can truly say that Eric is a friend now, and without his support, the support of his colleagues, and the entire team at KY APEX Accelerator, I would not be where I am today.”
