What we do
We are known as international problem solvers.
Some firms aspire to be a catch-all consulting empire; we simply choose to focus on select solutions that align with our unique corporate
experience, and that we can unequivocally deliver. We are unapologetically committed to niche expertise and an integrity-driven business model.
Each Forge solution intentionally complements one another, giving our clients the ability to tackle complex problems with both the
technologies required for fast-paced efficiency – and the human-experience required for lasting, widespread, transformative gains.
We challenge unnecessary processes and silence progress-stalling noise – freeing our experts to deliver on what really matters.
The landscape of the Security Cooperation (SC) & Security Assistance (SA) enterprise is both complex and ever changing. Navigating this technical terrain demands both experienced-based approaches and innovative multilateral initiatives that incorporate the latest geopolitical trends.
Forge is a proven architect and trusted shepherd of dynamic SC solutions for the most pressing and diverse defense issues. Our vetted specialists advise the spectrum of nodes across the network of international cooperative activities. Their understanding of nuances informs how they guide the exchange of information, analysis, and material. With experienced precision, respect for national autonomy, and a hard-earned reputation across international decision-makers, they streamline strategy, guidance, and program development. These competencies are deployed via a comprehensive approach – leading clients to successful accomplishment of complex foreign policy goals.
From the Country team to the halls of Congress, Forge navigates the barriers to multinational interoperability, and provides well-timed advice, analysis, and guidance.

With a knack for solving complex problems domestically and abroad, Forge Rapid Capabilities professionals apply a holistic approach to deliver on all elements that make technology endeavors successful: methodology, business processes, data, and (most importantly) people.
We are selective in pursuit of partnerships with prudent technology vendors that offer the most rationalized, human-centered routes to modernization. When coupled with a continuous investment in the next genesis of research, and our easily scalable Agile delivery approach, Forge's digital solutions maximize organizational ROI and accelerate change. Our teams deliver capabilities meeting the actual human needs of the mission, at the speed of relevance.
We ease the burden of modernization by strategically planning the execution of technology transformation programs and change management activities. Because if an organization doesn't believe in the tool and doesn't use it correctly, it doesn't really matter how smart it is.

With a tenacious drive for mission success, sensitive projects become tailored works of art, designed to each client's unique requirements. But discretion is key. Our foundation operating in fast-paced Special Operations environments and exercising tools & techniques used across the Intelligence community enables an enduring impact on each organization we humbly represent.
By thinking beyond what is currently possible (or as some would say, impossible), we develop solutions ahead of our time. Whether you know your goal – or need help solidifying it – we will explore ideas, build a roadmap to success, and deploy a force-multiplying impact – all delivered at the speed of relevance.
International collaboration and partnerships elevate, grow, and sustain business success – but without the right partner, entry into unfamiliar, convoluted, and restrictive international ecosystems can be tricky.
Our internationally savvy experts skillfully build trusted relationships around the globe. With respect to partner sovereign national security, we navigate social and export-control barriers, and lay a fast-track for growth. We have decades of experience interpreting and executing international programs under US and international law, which provides us with a sophisticated understanding of how and where industry can be inserted. Our proactive, smart, and calculated approach to international business saves long-term resources and opens new opportunities that generate increase revenue, organizational improvement, and multinational government-industry innovation.
