More than 40 years ago, Chemonics International began as a small business – with two employees – dedicated to promoting meaningful change around the world by helping people live healthier, more productive, and more independent lives.

Today, we employ more than 5,000 people and have worked in 150 countries to help our clients and beneficiaries overcome challenges in a broad range of development areas, from political instability to limited healthcare to poor market infrastructure. To help us achieve development impact, we rely on small businesses in specialties including public opinion research, sustainable tourism, microfinance, online content management, human rights institutional strengthening, early warning analysis, and more.

We know what it takes to grow a business, and we are committed to helping our small business partners grow as well. Your company will work hand in hand with our staff on all facets of U.S. government contracting, from proposal development through project implementation. If you are new to government contracting, our subcontractor liaisons and cost specialists can walk you through the proposal process. Upon contract award, our project management teams can guide you on U.S. government rules and regulations, accounting requirements, and invoicing procedures.

Our goal is a lasting partnership that extends beyond the life of a single project, building on the flexibility, innovation, and technical expertise that a small business offers. If that goal aligns with yours, please fill out our small business partner form
