April 11, 2021 | Leesburg, Virginia – Ignite and ActioNet, leading Digital Modernization services providers to the Federal Government, announced today that they have formed IgniteAction an SBA-Approved Mentor-Protégé Joint Venture, combining the large business expertise of ActioNet with the small business agility of Ignite.

Ashley Chen, ActioNet CEO, said similarly: “By combining forces, IgniteAction will be able to do more than either of us could do alone. Unlike many JV’s out there, which exist as a vehicle for large business to game the system, this is a true melding of the minds, and we think that customers will see the immediate benefits.”
