As the original certification organization that is dedicated to promoting and supporting service-disabled and veteran-owned businesses National Veteran Business Development Council (NVBDC) strongly believes that entrepreneurship is another form of employment and that helping veterans succeed in business can have a positive impact on not just the individual veterans, but also their families and the communities in which they reside.
There are many reasons why entrepreneurship is an attractive option for veterans. For one, it allows veterans to use the skills and experience they gained in the military to create their own businesses. Additionally, entrepreneurship can provide veterans with a sense of purpose and fulfillment, which can be difficult to find in traditional employment settings. Moreover, entrepreneurship can provide veterans with a greater degree of control over their work and their lives, which can be especially appealing for those who have experienced the rigidity and structure of military life.
Despite these advantages, starting a business can be challenging for veterans. Some of the obstacles many veterans will face are navigating the complex world of entrepreneurship and a lack of business connections and networks. This is where the National Veteran Business Development Council comes in.
NVBDC offers a range of resources and services to help veterans start and grow their businesses. These include Certification, training, and education opportunities via the NVBDC Services Learning Forum, and assistance with certifications and contracts. Additionally, the NVBDC provides a network of support for veteran-owned businesses, connecting them with other businesses and organizations that can help them succeed.
