Description/Abstract

Large companies understand the value of having a diverse supplier base that aligns with their diverse customer base. This creates opportunities for veteran-owned businesses (VOBs) as many larger companies are looking for VOBs to bring on as suppliers. Surprisingly, the biggest challenge that many of these companies face is identifying VOBs that fit a certain geographic or business need and have the ability to perform the work required. This resource is helpful for a general understanding of the veteran entrepreneurship industry.
