The Next Wave is owned by a Service Disabled Veteran- that makes us a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Business. We are also small enough, to be a SBU or Small Business Unit. We are located in a economically disadvantaged area and our employees live within it, that makes us 100% HUB Zone qualified. The State of Ohio DAS (Department of Administrative Services) EDGE Certificate (Encouraging Diversity, Growth and Equity) has granted us special status. We operate in the following NAICS codes:
54143 Graphic Design
541810 Advertising agencies
541613 Marketing Consulting Services
541511 web development
518210 web hosting
512110 video production
and if that isn’t enough to get you excited- we do good work too.
We are a founding member of VOB108; a group of Veteran business owners who are trying to navigate the maze of Federal Contracting opportunities and start winning government contracts.
By law, Federal buyers are to direct a percentage of funds to Veteran owned businesses, yet, the obstacles put in front of the small business owner to comply with all the purchasing requirements is monumental. To get a GSA schedule requires filling out a ream of paper and then a six-month wait- just to be able to tell the Government what you charge for various services.
If you are a large business involved with Federal purchasing and would like a sub-contractor to help meet your requirements, we are more than happy to work with you.
If you are a fellow SDVOB or VOB or SBU that wants to team with us, let us know as well – and if you are in the Dayton Ohio area consider joining VOB108.
