Certification of Veteran Businesses now has a new champion

    For the last two years we have been working on launching the National Veteran Business Development Council (NVBDC) a new Veteran Business Certification program to help our Veteran Business Owners to be able to share in the Supplier Diversity spend of Corporate America. We have been blessed to have a great group of people join us to make this program work. Our team consists of Veteran and non-Veteran Business leaders who share the same passion to help our Veterans succeed.

    The bottom line is that the Minority and Women Owned businesses have been very successful in working with Corporate America and participating in their purchasing process for almost 40 years. Since 1999 when the Federal Government established the Veteran and Disabled Veteran Business classification we have had almost no participation with Corporate spend. The single most cited reason is a lack of a Certification program that is acceptable to them. Well, with the hard work of our dedicated Officers and Board members, we have created the certification program that Corporate America has accepted and the Veterans will be proud to earn.

    We believe that our certification program is 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.

    We are pleased to announce that Corporate America is supporting the NVBDC certification program and have the written letters of support from GM, Kellogg’s, Consumers Energy, Ford, AT&T, 3M and others to back up our claim.

    Thank you for your support and consideration.

DOD Welcome home-small.jpg A welcoming home for our Troops.

Welcoming home our men and women doesn't end after the crowd disperses, it MUST continue on for the life of the Veteran! They've served us, now we will serve them with programs that work so they reintegrate into society.

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.
