Summit Consulting, LLC, a quantitative and qualitative analytics firm that provides data-driven solutions to help make government effective and society just, is pleased to announce that we have entered the Small Business Administration’s Mentor-Protégé Program (MPP) as a mentor to NuvoLogic Consulting, an 8(a)-certified, minority- and woman-owned small business. 

The new organization is called NuvoSum, and it will combine the resources, talents, and experience of both partners to pursue competitive set-aside contracts for economically disadvantaged woman-owned small businesses (EDWOSB) and 8(a) small businesses.


“At Summit, we are committed to providing mentorship and advisory services to help grow the next generation of stellar small businesses,” says Kate Lynch Machado, Summit’s Director of Client Development. “As a graduated 8(a) firm, we are thrilled to build this long-term Mentor–Protégé relationship with Judy Phruksaraj’s NuvoLogic. In our first agreement and joint venture, we chose to work with NuvoLogic because of the synergy in our areas of expertise in housing and finance and our firms’ commitment to pursue meaningful work to support the pandemic economic recovery efforts. We look forward to a long, fruitful partnership.”

“As a small, 8(a)-certified company, we have followed Summit’s journey over the years and have been inspired by their success and story,” says Judy Phruksaraj, CEO of NuvoLogic. “Entering into this relationship with Summit was a natural fit for us, as we had developed a strong and trusting relationship with Summit leadership over the last year and we were similarly aligned in values and goals. We are excited to learn from the growing pains and successes Summit experienced to help us continue to grow within the 8(a) program and to achieve the next level in our growth plan.”
