About AGX

AGX Marketing helps entrepreneurs, organizations and investors in the global Homeland Security Technology sector. We help clients achieve measurable, revenue generating objectives — and enable success long after our consulting engagement is over.

Because you need more than innovation to succeed.

Everyone likes to talk about how big the homeland security technology market is and what a fantastic opportunity it represents.

What they don’t mention is that a great product is no guarantee of success. Getting in front of the right decision makers, with the right message is always a challenge. And just because someone at DHS, or an airport, or an airline loves your solution doesn’t mean they will buy it.

Requirements are complex. Procurement cycles can take years. Competition is fierce.

AGX helps technology firms overcome these challenges. Our team has decades of experience and a deep professional network in the homeland security technology market. We are experts in marketing, business development, government relations, and security operations. We’ve built proprietary tools and databases to size market opportunities and find key contacts and partners.

We help clients achieve measurable, revenue generating objectives — and enable success long after our consulting engagement is over.
