The Mentor-Protégé program is one of the SBA’s business assistance programs for socially and economically disadvantaged firms that have been certified under the SBA’s 8(a) classification.

Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions provides a wide array of geospatial solutions to multiple markets, including solutions that enable military and intelligence organizations to combine data from different sources into a single environment for better decision making.

Through the program, Intergraph and Severn TechSources will joint venture as a small business to compete for government contracts. The new partnership was formed to enhance Intergraph’s presence in the federal government while further strengthening Severn TechSources’ position in the IT and government market.

“Intergraph and Severn TechSources have successfully partnered together in the past to provide leading-edge technology and specialized geospatial services for its customers,” said Dr. Umit Basoglu, Executive Vice President Geospatial Solutions Federal, Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions. “The Mentor-Protégé program will mutually benefit both companies as we continue to seek new growth opportunities.
