    Veteran Entrepreneurship Training Series (VETS)

    Albert R. Renteria, Chairman and CEO, The ARRC is presenting a IV Part series to guide Veteran Owned Business or start up on how to get Verification and Re-Verification with the Veteran Affairs (VA).

    Department of General Services Veteran Business Advocate and Outreach Liaison Wayne Gross joins us and will guide you on how to register your Veteran business with the State of California. 

    This is a MUST attend for our Veterans. 

    The fact is simple, 45% of our Veteran population is most likely self employed, yet less than 10% of this population is registered to do business with the Government and huge resource opportunity to create new revenue generators! Don't be hard to find JOIN US so you can increase your sales by selling to the government THEY WANT YOU!

Who we are

We are a national public benefit nonprofit organization that educates American Communities about best practices to serve Veterans.  We honor their service by empowering Veterans to apply their training and skills to successfully transition to productive careers and enterprises.

We provide free vocational training 24/7 to all of our members through our website, in addition to local events.  We believe the tenet that American Communities are the ultimate beneficiaries when Veterans claim their benefits and invest in productive endeavors.

The SWVBRC enlists the support of members of local Communities like you to increase Veteran awareness of the value of obtaining a VA card and receiving earned benefits.

Sponsorships, donations, volunteers and support from communities like yours enable us to reach out to Veterans and empower them to transition back into successful, productive enterprises that ultimately benefit all Americans and support future generations.
