Logical Innovations is an SBA-certified 8(a), Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB), Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB), and Economically Disadvantaged WOSB (EDWOSB) with experience supporting its federal and commercial clients in the areas of outreach, technical, business, and administrative services contracts. As Logical Innovations has grown, so has its footprint across the United States, with its headquarters in Houston and additional offices in the Washington, D.C. metro area, Ohio, California, and Louisiana. Since participating in the SBA 8(a) business development program in 2007, Logical Innovations has received five contracts totaling over $19 million and created over 40 jobs.
Logical Innovations’ owner and founder, Denise Navarro, has supported key federal and commercial organizations throughout her career, and now counts many of those organizations as clients for Logical Innovations. Navarro spent seven years researching and planning before taking the company fully operational in November 2006. She also attended training courses and forums at the Small Business Development Center (SBDC), a resource partner of the SBA. Having worked with several companies who have been certified in the SBA 8(a) business development program, Navarro also applied for the program. The 8(a) program provides business development assistance to eligible firms in a structured developmental process over a nine-year program participation term.
Navarro attributes much of the company’s successes to its relationship with the Small Business Administration. “The SBA’s developmental programs, guidance and support are key to an emerging small business. Through this alliance, we have been able to secure 8(a) contracts that have helped us to grow and maintain a positive footing in many markets over the years,” said Navarro. With a rich portfolio of offerings, diversified customer base and financial stability, Logical Innovations has survived and thrived in all economic climates. With a focus on its two customer bases — both clients and employees — Logical Innovations has been recognized with consistent 97 percent customer satisfaction ratings via Dun and Bradstreet Open Ratings surveys, as well as inclusion in the list of Houston’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in both 2012 and 2013, an honor voted on by its employees. “The success of Logical Innovations can be attributed to our hard-working and dedicated employees. We also leverage strong partnerships with our clients and industry partners to establish a vibrant corporate culture that allows us to pursue continuous improvement initiatives, and to continue to learn and evolve as an organization,” said Navarro.
Logical Innovations’ current and past federal clients include NASA at Johnson Space Center (JSC), Glenn Research Center (GRC), Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC), Headquarters, Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC), and Stennis Space Center (SSC); the US Agency for International Development; the Department of Commerce – U.S. Census Bureau; the Department of Defense – U.S. Army and Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR); the Department of Homeland Security – Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA); and the Department of Transportation at Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA); and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Logical Innovations also supports other federal prime contractors and the commercial energy industry.
