LEESBURG, February 5, 2019 – FedBiz IT has been named to the second annual Vet50 list—a compilation of the nation’s fastest growing veteran-owned businesses. The ranking, created in partnership with Inc. magazine and the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University (IVMF), was born out of the iconic Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies based in the U.S. Both distinctions are considered hallmarks of entrepreneurial success.
“We are honored to be included on this prestigious list,” says Nina Tiaga, CEO of FedBiz IT. “We have been given an incredible opportunity to use our skills and abilities to give back to our community and our country once more. We hope this inspires other aspiring veteran entrepreneurs to do the same.”
The Vet50 list first started in 2018 using data from the 2017 Inc. 5000. FedBiz IT joins the Vet50 list for the second time, this year ranking no. 4.
“Veterans bring an incredible array of knowledge and skills to the world of business. Inc. is proud to join in honoring the valuable contributions these leaders make to their communities and to the American economy,” says James Ledbetter, editor, Inc. magazine and Inc.com.
“All veteran entrepreneurs bring a unique set of proven skills and knowledge to the business world as a result of their military service,” said Mike Haynie, Syracuse University Vice Chancellor and IVMF Founder, Executive Director. “We are proud to partner with Inc. magazine and are grateful for their ability to shine a spotlight on the success of veteran-owned businesses who contribute so much to the fabric of the American economy. These successful business owners on the Vet50 list are inspiring examples of how important and valuable veteran entrepreneurs are to our society and economy. These individuals not only served for the sake of our collective freedom and security, they are now continuing to serve by bettering the economic climate in their communities and across the country.”
Companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2014 to 2017. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2014. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent–not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies–as of December 31, 2017. The minimum revenue required for 2014 is $100,000; the minimum for 2017 is $2 million.
