Joint Ventures

Right Partners. Right People. Right Experience. Right Now.

QED is proud to support the Small Business Administration’s Mentor-Protégé Program, mentoring emerging small businesses in the international development community. As part of this effort, QED is establishing several joint ventures to enhance the corporate capabilities of both companies and allow us to pursue new business opportunities in a collaborative way that provides for learning for both mentor and protégé.

Institute for Development Impact

QED has partnered with the Institute for Development Impact (I4DI) to establish Q4DI, our first joint venture. Our collective knowledge, expertise and experience creates an unparalleled synergy of innovation, enthusiasm and understanding of USAID that we will apply to monitoring, evaluation and learning opportunities worldwide.

Q4DI’s competitive advantage lies in the return on investment we offer as a joint venture, and our demonstrated success in implementing monitoring, evaluation, and learning projects around the world. QED’s expertise and pioneering work affords us the opportunity to guide and mentor while simultaneously collaborating with our joint-venture partners to best serve our clients.

QED has partnered with Visionary Consulting Partners to establish VQ International Solutions, our second joint venture. Our combined experience allows us to deliver innovative and dynamic solutions to our clients in the areas of democracy and governance, global health solutions, staff augmentation, and rapid response.

VQ’s competitive advantage lies in the synergy our two organizations provide and our demonstrated experience providing cutting-edge and cost-effective solutions to clients including USAID; the Centers for Disease Control; the Departments of Defense, State, and Labor, and; the Veteran’s Administration. QED’s expertise and pioneering work affords us the opportunity to guide and mentor while simultaneously collaborating with our joint-venture partners to best serve our clients.
