Norfolk State University alumnus Devon Henry was recently profiled in Fortune Magazine’s ‘Inner City 100,’ a feature on small businesses making big gains in metropolitan areas nationwide. From Forbes:
A native Newport News resident, Devon Henry knows the value in supporting small and disadvantaged businesses. Team Henry, which provides construction management, environmental, marine, and emergency response services, created a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise consortium—a collection of 30 different small disadvantaged businesses—to collaborate on a big FAA contract. In addition to being a registered DBE, the company is also a Small Business Administration certified 8(a) participant and is located in a HUBZone—all of which open funding opportunities. Henry has also created an endowment at Norfolk State University with a focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education.
