Capitol Advisors on Technology


Our Story

Tyrone Taylor’s experience and success in the public and private sectors led him to found Capitol Advisors on Technology (CAT) in 2003. In the beginning, CAT was a boutique firm working with several federal agencies to meet the challenges of sourcing new technologies and assisting in their commercialization. Specifically, CAT focused on leveraging federally sponsored research by transferring technologies for use in both the public and private sectors to provide greater benefits for all.

While the technology transfer work was rewarding, CAT decided to expand into other areas including business development and program management. With that change, the company has worked in several areas such as information technology, healthcare, and homeland security. Along the way, CAT learned from other firms and formed strategic partnerships that expanded the client base and had a positive impact on our efficiency and stability.

Today CAT is a successful firm with approximately 45 employees and consultants who provide exceptional services to a range of clients. CAT’s goal is to provide the best talent to help our customers succeed. Moreover, CAT is a firm that recognizes its staff are critical to its success, requires everyone to abide by its core values, and strives to maintain an inclusive and supportive work culture.
