In today’s ultra-competitive market, having the right qualifications and experience simply isn’t enough. Strong relationships and painstakingly-tailored SOQs/proposals are the key to gaining new clients and breaking into new markets.


What it takes to win today will not necessarily win tomorrow.

Using a disciplined approach to pursuits, Skyrocket works closely with your technical staff to identify project challenges and clearly, concisely communicate the technical approach. Together, we define the team’s strengths, overcome its weaknesses – and redefine what it takes to win.


Whether working in concert with or in place of your in-house marketing staff, Skyrocket’s services are tailored to your individual needs.

We are 110% committed to our client’s success from RFQ/RFP issuance, to shortlist, to contract award.

About Skyrocket

Skyrocket is a niche marketing firm engaged in all phases of the pursuit process with a specialization in infrastructure. We are hard-working, fun-loving, results driven-marketing professionals who looove to win.

Unlike most marketers, we work hand-in-hand with engineers and technical staff to bridge the information gap between technical and marketing.

With a firm belief that good is not good enough and that work really can be fun, Skyrocket was founded in 2015 to provide engineering firms with the tools, processes, knowledge and commitment required to win.

To put it simply, all of our services have the potential to result in contract award to our client (and a round of high-fives for us).
