8th Annual National Veterans Small Business Conference and Expo

Ladies and gentlemen, girls and boys, the 8th Annual National Veterans Small Business Conference and Expo is just around the corner.  As of this writing, it is slightly more than 2 months away.  I am especially excited about attending the conference again this year as the organizers are projecting over 6,000 participants will attend.  Detroit, here we come!

The National Veterans Conference continues to grow each year.  That means that more and more Veterans are accepting the Vetrepreneur calling and starting and growing businesses.  Many important topics will be discussed at this year’s conference.  I doubt any discussions will be more passionate than those around the SD/VOSB verification process and the Veterans First Contracting Program.

The Veteran Owned Business movement is gaining momentum and more and more people are supporting the Buy Veteran campaign.  The country and big business are warming to the idea that Small Business in general and Veteran-Owned Small Business specifically is the economic engine that will drive our recovery.

The Obama administration has placed special emphasis on training programs aimed at teaching Veterans how to start, grow and run successful businesses.  There are a number of Veteran Entrepreneurship Training programs around the country that provide quality training.  One of the better programs is right here in Dallas – Momentum Texas, Inc.

There will be more information and discussion about the National Veterans Conference, as we get closer to the actual event.  In the meantime, “keep your powder dry.”

 

See you on the high ground!
