“Starting Spartan was all about giving people an opportunity they otherwise wouldn’t have. There are lots of good people out there, but few opportunities. I had already retired from the military, so this wasn’t about needing more money, but rather I had something to offer and enjoyed creating new things. Helping people comes from the heart—in helping someone you can change a life.”
Lorenzo Downing, President of Spartan Business and Technology, founded his business with the core mission of serving people. Spartan provides solutions to government agencies and institutions to improve their businesses through the use of new technology and management best practices. Spartan is a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business located in National Harbor, Maryland, just across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C.
