2018 7th Annual Veteran and Small Business Pre-Summit VETS - Getting On The Grid

View our archive videos at www.VETS.Training!

Veteran Entrepreneurship Training Series (VETS)
We have teamed up with in Chantilly, VA, the CEO Dave Gardy and I go way back and agreed to make VETS a live webcast so everyone can learn how to Get On The Grid and become Procurement Ready.

This will be our first East Coast VETS and a segment you don't want to miss! We are inviting a group of speakers and as we secure them we will introduce them.

Two of our board members Stan Fujii and Valerie Ormond, Chief Executive Officer, Veteran Writing Services, LLC will be speaking on procurement type topics and the meaning of Procurement Ready. We are inviting Tom Leney or his representative and others that you must hear from. 

This approach is like many of us Veterans were indoctrinated to become Operational Capable prior to deployment. We trained for six months to deploy as Special Operational Capable (SOC), this model will serve to get you SOC for our 7th Annual Veteran and Small Business Summit being held in Oceanside CA on Feb 26, 27, 2018. 

We are lining up decision makers so that those Procurement Ready are vetted during these six months of training, so think pre-deployment training, this will be a monthly VETS across the nation and you don't want to be a non-deployable, you know what I mean! Don't let the ship leave without you. Semper Fi, Al

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.

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.
