SimVentions has been blessed to be one of the 5000 Fastest-Growing, Privately Held Companies in America, as rated by Inc. Magazine for 4 out of the past 6 years! FredAlive and the Fredericksburg Department of Economic Development and Tourism hosted a celebration on November 5th at Fredericksburg Baptist Church to honor the local companies that were recognized by Inc. Magazine, and for making Fredericksburg so special. What is even more special is the fact that all the proceeds from this event went to Micah Ministries, a local outreach to our area’s homeless.
FredAlive is an organization that began with the intent to celebrate, teach, and support small businesses in the Fredericksburg area. Fredericksburg is a wonderful place and FredAlive wants that to be highlighted. It is one of the fastest growing regions in Virginia and has one of the highest concentrations of Doctorate degrees in America. Their dedication to recognizing and growing small businesses creates a stronger community and preserves the city’s charm.
Members of our Technology Solutions Group attended the event and accepted the award on SimVentions’ behalf and spoke about the opportunity one can find here. One of our managers, Alison Perry, spoke to everyone in attendance saying, “SimVentions is set apart from the rest because the company and employees truly care about one another.” She also talked about the uniqueness of Fredericksburg because of its “hometown feel and close-knit community.”
One of our employees that attended, Jacob Lysher, said, “It was a humbling experience to see how other local small businesses look at the core values and successes of SimVentions as inspirational. It makes you feel lucky to work at a place like this.”
SimVentions is honored to be one of the many small businesses that puts Fredericksburg on the radar. We are constantly looking for hard-working individuals with similar values to help us grow even more.
