The NVTC Tech 100 lists ground-breaking companies, leaders, and innovators within the Greater Washington region’s technology community.

“2022 has been a year of tremendous growth for our region’s technology hub, thanks to the dynamic companies and individuals who are innovating and making a positive impact in the world.  Their contributions are why our region is one of the nation’s most vibrant and collaborative technology communities,” said Jennifer Taylor, president and CEO of NVTC. 

Taylor added, “NVTC congratulates Intelligent Waves for going above and beyond within their company and in their respective industries. Even in these unprecedented times of record levels of high inflation and hybrid work, the future of our tech community is brighter than ever, because of the momentous contributions of these leaders and companies.”

Intelligent Waves creates high-tech jobs for veterans in Northern Virginia and the country. Veterans make up nearly half of the organization’s workforce.
