Tactical Edge Named to Inc. Magazine’s Vet100 List of Fastest-Growing Veteran-Owned Companies
December 7, 2020 – Tactical Edge has been named to the annual Vet100 list, a compilation of the nation’s fastest-growing veteran-owned businesses.
Tactical Edge, a leading software engineering company responsible for designing, developing, and deploying software solutions for the U.S. military and commercial clients, appears on the Vet100 list for the first time.
The Vet100 ranking, created in partnership with Inc. magazine and Syracuse University’s Institute for Veterans and Military Families (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. Originally established as the Vet50 list, this year’s list is the third iteration expanded to include 100 veteran-owned businesses in acknowledging the growing culture and success of veteran entrepreneurs.
“Tactical Edge is very proud to be named to the Vet100 List of Fastest-Growing Veteran-Owned Companies.” said Tactical Edge CEO John Goodman, “Service is part of our DNA. From the leadership on down, Tactical Edge is comprised of many men and women who’ve proudly served our nation. Our team of modern software experts continues to support our troops in the field by creating software solutions and services for the Department of Defense. We are proud of this accomplishment, our history of Service, and the incredible work our team continues to achieve.”
In August, Tactical Edge ranked No. 1575 on the Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The San Diego-based software development company continues to build on its success, working with the Department of Defense on multiple logistic software development and modernization initiatives. They’ve also expanded their products and services over the past year, with a third-party software testing service (TEST) launched in 2020 and an asset-tracking software solution (TVA) debuting in 2021.
“Business growth is a real economic driver in this country, and the fact is that most of the new jobs in the economy—over 87 percent—are created by private businesses,” says Eric Schurenberg, CEO of Mansueto Ventures, publisher of Inc. Magazine. “Veteran entrepreneurs contribute their share to the job story, employing over 5.5 million. They deserve to be recognized for their continued service to the country.”
