All Native Services
What started as a dream to improve the lives of the Winnebago people is today a thriving Native American-owned firm of more than 300 employees, boasting $25 million in revenue.
In 1994 Winnebago Tribal leaders decided to organize Ho-Chunk, Inc., the reservation‘s economic development company. At that time, the reservation in northeast Nebraska suffered from a 70 percent unemployment rate. Today, with more than 20 companies created by the economic development company, unemployment on the reservation is less than 10 percent.
The most successful of these companies is All Native Services, founded in 1999 and headquartered in Winnebago, Neb., with offices in Bellevue, Neb., and Washington, D.C. All Native Services provides managed services in information technology, professional services and comprehensive voice and data communication solutions. The company recently has expanded into renewable energy technology.
“Since receiving our SBA 8(a) certification in 2007, we have been able to create 112 professional and technical jobs offering excellent compensation and benefits,” said Jake Moore, CEO of All Native Services.
From 2006 to 2008, the firm’s revenues jumped from $368,204 to more than $12 million. The firm has worked with the Mexican government to complete critical improvements to the country’s information technology infrastructure, strengthening its efforts against illegal alien smuggling and terrorism on its borders. All Native Systems also provided support for a DNA database to identify of murder victims on the Mexican border.
