Fairfax and Prince William federal contractors launch joint venture
Tyto Athene and Veterans First Initiative start Optima Government Solutions
Herndon-based systems integration company Tyto Athene LLC and Veterans First Initiative (VFI) LLC of Prince William County have launched a joint venture: Haymarket-based Optima Government Solutions LLC.
Optima will provide IT services including engineering and systems integration to the U.S. federal government and U.S. Department of Defense. The joint venture is a service-disabled veteran-owned small business joint venture formed through the U.S. Small Business Administration’s All-Small Mentor-Protégé Program (MPP).
In August 2018, Arlington Capital Partners launched Tyto Athene after its $75 million acquisition of Black Box’s government solutions unit.
