Written By: Aleut in partnership with MetroStar
RESTON, VA– MetroStar and Aleut Information Technology, LLC (Aleut), are pleased to announce their new Mentor-Protégé Agreement (MPA) through the SBA Mentor-Protégé Program (MPP).
MetroStar is a leading IT and digital transformation provider for the public sector and has been accelerating government missions for over two decades. Aleut provides innovative solutions for enterprise-level IT infrastructure and communications. Under the MPA, MetroStar will mentor Aleut in business development endeavors, expanding upon MetroStar’s expertise in the areas of Human-Centered Design, Applied Intelligence, DevSecOps, Cloud, Cybersecurity, and Enterprise IT.
In addition to the MPA, the companies will create a joint venture (JV), AleutianStar. This JV combines the companies’ respective capabilities, bringing cutting-edge digital IT services to the government and public sector. AleutianStar will be registered in the System for Award Management under primary NAICS code 541990, All Other Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services.
“Through our JV, AleutianStar will provide the high-touch experience of a small business while simultaneously increasing capacity and enhancing Aleut’s robust capabilities,” said Aleut’s General Manager, John Mays.
The SBA MPP allows eligible small businesses (protégés) to receive valuable business development assistance, increase capacity, and win Federal contracts through relationships with more mature companies (mentors). Protégés can draw on the resources and experience of the larger, more established firm, which in turn may pursue any contract set aside for which the protégé qualifies, such as 8(a) small, disadvantaged businesses.
“It’s an honor and privilege to support the Alaskan native community through our partnership with Aleut,” said MetroStar’s Chief Operating Officer, Mo Hessabi. “As a former small business, MetroStar values communities’ importance in helping an organization grow and succeed. We are a people-first company, meaning that we are committed to giving back to the communities in which we work, whether through mentorship or expansion opportunities. This partnership ensures we can deliver innovative mission-centric solutions with communities that matter in tow.”
