Corporate History

Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC was born in 2006 at Virginia Tech’s Corporate Research Center in Blacksburg VA to bring innovation and change to the federal IT sector. We believed that with federal budgets shrinking, there was a huge opportunity to bring more efficiency to government through innovative technology solutions. From the start, Harmonia focused on two simple foundational ideas – a) recruit top talent to the team and provide world-class benefits and an environment to succeed, and b) develop innovative solutions for the government.

We found the Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) grants to be a unique and unparalleled way to seed innovative approaches and ideas. They allowed us to gauge some of the pain points in government, they also helped assimilate a keen understanding and knowledge of federal IT and procurement processes overall. Several of the seeds we sowed through the SBIR program not only led to full-blown solutions such as CACPay, a virtual payment system in the process of being implemented across the US Naval fleet; Conforma, a software assurance solution that has been competitively selected and is being implemented by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA); or RapidStat, a visual statistical analysis package that provides SAS-type functionality within Excel to researchers at the National Cancer Institute; they laid the foundation for our growth and success.

Today, we’ve created a fun-loving, hard-working environment for ourselves that first and foremost looks to take care of its own. This is reflected in our incredible positive feedback on sites such as Glassdoor. Incredibly though, a simple idea such as that has also helped us grow to a talented team of close to 400 professionals who are so relentless in our focus on high-quality, innovative, cutting-edge technology solutions for our customers, you can say that delivering measurable impact is just part of our DNA now.

More than 3/4ths of a million dollars donated to charitable causes since 2015

We at Harmonia believe we have a responsibility to the communities in which we operate and to the world in general. In the end, we are all part of this giant family we call humanity. Just like delivering measurable impact, giving back and doing our share in making our world a better, more equitable place to live is a part of our DNA as well. Since our inception, we have supported several local, national and international organizations that focus on making the lives of the underprivileged a little bit better.

We are corporate sponsors of The Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC) Veterans Employment Initiative, which seeks to accelerate Veterans’ transition to civilian life by providing better employment opportunities within Virginia’s technology community. It’s our way to salute our Veterans, to say thanks for their service, and to honor the long and continued privilege of developing innovative technology solutions for the Department of Defense – where our journey started.

We are also funding women in leadership and government programs at premiere educational institutions such as Georgetown University. As a woman-owned and managed company, our commitment to gender equality in our workforce is absolute and complete.

We also support international initiatives focused on health, hygiene and children’s education, in particularly the girl-child, in third-world countries through organizations such as Rotary International and Pratham. It is our way of honoring the various ethnicities and cultural backgrounds of our team.

And, we don’t just stop there. We also encourage each of our team members to give back individually, by matching the contributions they make to philanthropic causes. In 2016 alone, we donated more than $150,000.00 to philanthropic causes. And each year, beating the number from the previous year isn’t just a target – it’s a commitment.
