As a business owner, you understand the importance of networking. The more you connect with other business owners and players, the greater your growth potential. Connecting with other businesses can be challenging without help. As a military veteran, you have access to the Veteran Owned Business Routable (VOBRT), a national association designed to “Serve those who have served.” Membership connects you to those who can help you open doors, grow and prosper. There are several benefits of joining and listing your business in the VOBRT business directory and mobile app.
Connect with Other Veteran Business Owners
Other veteran business owners understand your struggle. Opening your own business after service brings with it unique perils, many of which other veteran owners have experienced themselves. Connecting with other veteran business owners allows you to form partnerships and grow your brands together. Whether you’re looking for a supplier or advice, listing your business in the VOBRT instantly places you within easy reach of other veteran businesses.
Other Companies are More Likely to Work With You
The federal government requires subcontracting with service disabled veteran owned business and many large corporations have expanded their outreach to all veteran owned business. However, knowing where to look in order to find VOBs with the kind of product line or experience needed isn’t easy. Corporations can search the VOBRT business directory to identify candidates with whom to do business. For example, Ford Motor Company® may require a vendor to provide staffing services or a large clothing retailer may search for a logistics company. Whatever these larger corporations need, searching for veteran owned businesses and discovering companies like Sygnetics Staffing Services and CMAC Transportation now becomes that much easier through the VOBRT, and you can become a part of it.
Mentorship for Veterans
Even if owning your own business has been a dream-come-true, the day-to-day operation likely has a few twists and turns you didn’t expect. The Veteran Owned Business Roundtable offers a mentorship program that helps to connect with established veteran-owned business owners for advice, feedback and/or guidance. As when you served the military, every member of the VOBRT has each other’s back; So learning from others’ experiences can prove to be one of the most valuable benefits for you.
Everything Goes Mobile
The business directory is designed for people on-the-go. All of our members, upcoming events and deals offered can be accessed via the VOBRT’s mobile application. This way, you can always find veteran suppliers and mentors for your business. The only questions you have to ask yourself are “Can they can find you?” and “Are you ready to do business with the corporations and government agencies that are looking to do business with you?
By joining theVeteran Owned Business Roundtable your business will be standing with comrades who share a unique experience and loyalty. Your business will have opportunities to be helped and to help others by ‘serving those who have served.’
