Fast Rope does not take the place of other large Government to Industry Professional Associations like AFCEA, NDIA and many others, rather it compliments them and serves as an invaluable Peer to Peer Industry Forum where industry partners share useful insights and seek opportunities with each other to team and win work. Government are encouraged to search the member directory, but are restricted from viewing the Peer to Peer Industry Member Forums Online.

What Fast Rope is…

  • Founded Sep 2009, Dayton, Ohio.
  • Small Group of trusted peers with a great deal of common ground and potential synergy.
  • Regional Round Table meetings to exchange useful information.
  • Useful Information and relationships are the currency.
  • Because this groups are relationship based people are members more so than companies.
  • Meetings are currently held in Dayton, DC, San Antonio, and other new market areas.
  • New members are typically invited in by existing members.
  • Focus is quality…not quantity.

What Fast Rope is NOT…

  • Not a large complex professional industry association with lots of rules and by laws.
  • Not a small highly focused pursuit team with NDAs and contracts in place, but hopefully this forum leads to these opportunities.
  • Not a highly diverse mastermind group with little in common as business developers.
  • Not a high volume B to B networking group with low familiarity among members.
  • Not a place to be a taker/sponge that does not actively engage their peers.
