Leading Edge Design Group (LEDG) is proud to announce its acceptance and certification with the U.S. Small Business Administration 8(a) Business Development Program. Participation in the program supports the LEDG’s steady growth providing quality data center, smart building, and data intelligence services to the public and private sectors.
According to a Small Business Administration (SBA) 2020 statistics, there are 31.7 million small businesses in the United States, and only about 5,000 of them have obtained 8(a) certification.

Our 8(a) acceptance comes at an excellent time for federal agencies as high-performing data centers and smart building digital advancements are imperative for government sustainable and scalable operations,” states Todd Boucher, Leading Edge Design Group Founder and Principal.
