The Veterans Business Outreach Program

The Veteran's Business Outreach Program (VBOP), initiated by the U. S. Small Business Administration's Office of Veteran's Business Development, is a program designed to enable men and women who have served in the Armed Forces to take full advantage of the opportunities presented by owning and operating their own business.

In addition to the comprehensive services offered by the SBDC, the Veteran's Business Outreach Program also offers mentorship and networking services designed for veteran business owners.
