Over the Business Cycle,
SBA.GOV Veterans constitute a vital part of the nation’s population and business sector. Their economic success is a national priority and a key objective of government efforts to expand small business and entrepreneurship opportunities. The recent recession challenged all businesses. While there has been ample discussion of the growth and decline of businesses during the economic cycles of the past 30 years, knowledge of the experience of business owners (at either the individual or household level) is lacking.
Small Business Engagement
The 2014 Engagement has been specifically tailored to enable procurement ready Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (VOSBs) to discuss potential opportunities directly with a large number of Procurement Decision Makers (PDMs) from both the Federal and Commercial sectors. These opportunities will provide the ACCESS that is vital to successful business development.

Launch Corporate Veteran Business Certification Program
Let's show that Veterans stick together and help launch the one opportunity that will benefit every Veteran Business Owner, their family, their community and the Nation by giving them the certification they will need to do business with the leading corporations in America!
The National Veteran Business Development Council (NVBDC) is the certification 501c3 non-profit organization for Veteran Owned (VOB's) and Service Disabled Veteran Owned Businesses (SDVOB's) that will effectively remove the block from sharing in the supplier diversity spend of Corporate America due to a lack of certification.
Simply go to crowdrise.com and donate $10.00 or more and then ask your friends to do the same; The team that raises the most during the Challenge wins a $50,000 donation..... Please don't wait, donate today and ask your friends to donate. Everything launches on Monday, September 15th at 12:00 pm ET and ends Thursday, October 30th at 11:59:59 am ET.
Since the Federal Government established the Veteran Owned and Disabled Veteran Owned Business classifications, Veteran Businesses have been seeking equal opportunities with Corporate America. They have not, however, been included in the Corporate America spend. The single most cited reason is that there is not a national certifying body that meets their standards.We have created that certification organization and the process that they have accepted and now we need your support to expand.
Of course, even if we don't win the challenge, we get to keep the money we raise during the campaign. This is what we love about this effort, they are not skimming any money off the top so every penny comes to the NVBDC and will help us expand the certification program that Corporate America has demanded and is supporting.
We will use the money to hire staff (Veterans whenever possible) and cover our operating expenses as we grow and expand to cover the entire country.
Thank you for your support and consideration.
