Vet 100

February 2nd, 2022, Arlington, Virginia - Blake Willson Group, LLC (BWG) is pleased to announce that it has once again earned a place on Inc. 5000’s 2022 Vet100 list of Fastest-Growing Veteran-Owned Private Companies in the United States. Likewise, BWG is pleased to be part of the 44% of Vet100 companies that have been on the Inc. 5000 list more than once. 

Created in partnership with Inc. magazine, the Vet100 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, 2020’s list expanded to include 100 veteran-owned businesses in acknowledgment of the growing culture and success of veteran entrepreneurs. 

As stated by Syracuse University Vice Chancellor and IVMF Founder and Executive Director, Mike Haynie, “This year’s list reflects the grit and resilience veterans demonstrate every day, logging enormous growth amid a dynamically challenging business environment. Our partnership with Inc. magazine is critical to highlighting the success of these veteran-owned businesses.” 

The 2022 Vet100 honorees will be formally recognized during the Vet100 Dinner and Awards Ceremony in June.
