Sweetspot launched on Y Combinator's "Launch YC" recently!

Launch YC: Sweetspot | AI-powered search engine for government contracts 🔍

"Government contract bidding made easy"

connects your business to all available and relevant government contracts in just seconds.

Founded by Sachin Subramanian & Philip Kung. The founders have known each other since freshman year of college. Since then, they've competed in a number of hackathons and even worked together at Coinbase prior to embarking on their startup journey! Their motivation for Sweetspot emerged after a discussion with a mutual friend working at a real estate firm. His job was to find relevant federal real-estate contracts all day and he hated it due to the poor searching experience. That's when the lightbulb went off, and Sweetspot's concept took shape.


 is an AI-powered search engine for businesses that bid on government contracts. Businesses can leverage Sweetspot to find relevant contracts in just seconds, instead of spending hours digging through SAM.gov.

😵‍💫 The Problem

Finding government contracts on SAM.gov is a nightmare, especially for small businesses. The current system is cluttered, hard to navigate, and relies heavily on keyword search, which often leads to irrelevant results - discouraging small businesses looking for contract opportunities. The clunky UI adds another layer of complexity, creating an overall frustrating experience.

Imagine you’re part of a landscaping company just getting into contract bidding. Just look at how poor a simple search for “lawn care” contracts on SAM.gov is:

💡 Solution

Sweetspot utilizes a combination of semantic and lexical search to streamline the process of searching for government contracts. Businesses can now find various relevant opportunities with just one query, eliminating the need for multiple keyword searches to do hours-long research.

Imagine you’re part of an upstart landscaping company (again). Look how many more relevant contracts you find in under a second for querying “lawn care” using Sweetspot:
