Enlightenment Capital Launches National Security-Focused Company

Enlightenment Capital has formed a company with the goal to provide defense and intelligence technologies and support services for the U.S. government’s national security missions.

Everwatch is headquartered in Ashburn, Va., and consolidates four entities acquired by Enlightenment, the investment group said Monday.

“We are thrilled to join forces with Enlightenment, as they are partners that share an unflinching focus on the mission of our clients,” said Robert Miller, president of EverWatch.

Nearly all of the newly established firm’s 400 employees hold government security clearances.

Devin Talbott, managing partner at Enlightenment, said the company plans to continue to invest in EverWatch organically or through mergers and acquisitions.
