Angie Lienert, President & CEO
Angie Lienert began IntelliGenesis, LLC with a dedication to keeping our soldiers safe through the improved analysis and protection of the USA’s National Security Missions. Angie founded IntelliGenesis in 2007 and has since grown the company to more than 150 employees specializing in Machine Learning & Data Science, Cyber Services & Analytics, All-Source Analysis, and Mission Application Development. IntelliGenesis products and services are setting the standard in the Intelligence Community (IC) and helping to change the way government contracts are awarded to small businesses. As a business owner, Angie started the kind of company that she wanted to work for and continues to ensure it has that supportive atmosphere for every employee—one where employees work hard and enjoy coming to work, but also where their personal lives are valued.
Angie began her career as an Arabic Linguist in the USAF and gained professional experience within the Intelligence Community working as a Computational Linguist, Trainer, Business Developer and Program Manager. Under her leadership, the contracts and projects she led consistently grew in user base, team size, and revenue. Along the way, Angie also invested in her own education—achieving her AAS, BS, and MBA degrees, as well as gaining her PMP certification.
Today, Angie uses her influence to not only lead a successful and growing small business, but also to improve and to promote opportunities for other veterans and women in business. Over the years, she has served as a Founder and Board Liaison for the Women in Technology (WIT) group, been on the Board of Directors for both the DoD Woman Owned Small Business Consortium (WOSBC) and the Chesapeake Regional Tech Council (CRTC), and currently serves On the Early College Program Advisory Board. Angie hosts and promotes various events and mentorships for girls and women in the technology industry, and is a proud supporter of veterans’ charities, especially the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Association. IntelliGenesis has also created the Women supporting Women in STEM Scholarship which is awarded yearly to eleven graduating high school students planning to pursue a college education in STEM areas of study.
Angie has received a number of professional awards for her entrepreneurship and philanthropy efforts to include: The Baltimore Sun’s Top Leadership Award, Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year, Maryland’s Most Influential People, Women in Technology – Leadership Award, to name a few.
