This Naval Academy grad has grown the threat analytics firm she founded in 2003 — it does things like predict the location of IEDs –into a fast-growing government contractor with revenue of close to $40 million. Hay spotted opportunity: As a woman, a minority (her mother is from Vietnam), and a service-disabled veteran (her hearing was damaged while in the Navy), she knew she’d have an edge in the contracting process — and that the government has to expedite pay to small businesses. Hay has political ambitions: Her fundraisers and events are celebrity- and politico-studded.
