History of Copper River IT
Copper River IT was established in 2006 as a socio-economically disadvantaged, federally recognized Alaskan Tribally-Owned 8(a) certified entity, owned by the Native Village of Eyak (NVE). Based in Cordova, Alaska and the surrounding Copper River Delta region, NVE founded Copper River IT to diversify the Tribes ability to provide self-determination, benefits, and generational sustainment for its members.
From its inception, Copper River primarily focused on the Federal IT products and services market and grew steadily from a handful of employees in 2006 to over 30 full time employees in 2011. To diversify product and service offerings in the enterprise networking and cyber security fields, Copper River completed a strategic acquisition in 2012 resulting in Copper River rapidly achieving Cisco Gold, Juniper Elite, Brocade Elite, Palo Alto Networks Platinum and ForeScout Elite partner levels. This created a new platform for diversity and growth within Federal and Commercial markets. Currently, Copper River's success and rapid growth has led to the graduation from the SBA 8(a) program, with approximately 140 employees serving Federal, State, Commercial, and Educational customers with product and service offerings. While we are proud of where we came from, and our growth since inception, we are constantly working towards further growth and diversification in strategic and creative venues to support our Mission and Values.
