There’s a trillion dollar trove of government contracts in America hiding within thousands of requests for proposals and grant applications. Trying to match RFPs and grants to a company’s capabilities can cost thousands of hours.

Baltimore County’s Jeehye Yun experienced this frustration as the CEO of SSG, an IT contractor. Yun teamed up with Jim Kukla, a software engineer and former computer science researcher, to build a solution: RedShred. 

Access to capital and community

Part of RedShred's success is access to capital and community. The company's location at bwtech@UMBC offers a ready network of university research, entrepreneurship, business leads and prospective clients.

Baltimore County’s Boost Loan Fund provided RedShred with working capital to help them hire six more people.  

RedShred is growing. Their software is helping other businesses grow by strategically mining government contracting opportunities.

Baltimore County is proud to fuel an entrepreneur who’s fueling entrepreneurs. 

The Baltimore County Boost Loan Fund is a flexible financing resource for small-, minority-, veteran- and women-owned businesses in the region. For more information or to apply for a loan, visit the Baltimore County Department of Economic and Workforce Development at or call 410-887-8000.
