Aegis is proud to be honored as a first-ever recipient of the Vet50 List of the nation’s 50 fastest-growing veteran-owned businesses. Vet50 is a partnership between the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) at Syracuse University and Inc magazine. Aegis ranked as the nation’s 36th fastest-growing veteran-owned business.
The Vet50’s rankings were announced at the Veteran EDGE national conference held in February in Austin, TX. The conference was dedicated solely to veteran and military spouse business owners and the ecosystem that supports them. The awards dinner featured keynote speaker NASA astronaut Scott Kelly, Captain (USN, Retired) and guest speaker Medal of Honor recipient Jack Jacobs, Colonel (US Army Retired).
“Veteran business owners bring unconventional leadership and grit to succeed. They have a history of entrepreneurship that goes back decades. This list will not only inform but it will inspire other entrepreneurs — veteran and civilian,” said Syracuse University Vice Chancellor of Strategic Initiatives and Innovation and IVMF Founder, Executive Director Mike Haynie.
