Did you know that Veterans represent only 6% of the total U.S. population but account for 13.5% (or 3.7 million) of all small businesses in the United States? These businesses employ 5.8 million Americans; pay wages in excess of $210 billion; and contribute $1.7 trillion to the U.S. GDP. Veteran-owned businesses truly are fueling the economy.

The Annual Veterans In Business Conference provides education, networking and business opportunities for military Veterans who continue to strengthen our country with their small business endeavors and entrepreneurial spirit. The conference was created by civic and business leaders in Northern Virginia to provide networking opportunities, training and exposure to veterans who wish to grow their businesses (whether it be B2B, B2G,B2C or non-profit) through the many opportunities the metro DC area affords.

The Veterans in Business Conference is focused on all Veteran-owned businesses. The greater Washington area is home to a large number of Veteran-owned businesses as well as the majority of federal agencies, prime contractors and general consumers who work with them. The Veterans In Business Conference can provide attendees with unique exposure to many of the small business offices from the Federal Government and the corporations that often need SD/VOSBs to join their teams.
