Think of government contracts and resources as a vast pool of job opportunities that are just out of reach. Then there’s you and your company, reaching for those jobs, but not quite able to grasp them. What if a funnel channeled some of those prospects to you? That’s what the new 2017 VOBRT (Veteran Owned Business Round Table) leadership wants to be: The tool that routes your company to those job possibilities and directs the flow of government and corporate contracts to you.
One of the main benefits of membership in the VOBRT is access to specialty events. These VOBRT-community events not only make it possible to network with other veteran business owners in 2017, but you can also gain valuable insights and knowledge in problem areas you as a veteran business owner may have. Everyone who takes part in VOBRT activities is in it to grow their own businesses and to help other veterans be successful. So, if you’re still considering membership in or just joined and want to know more about services offered, here is exactly what it means to participate in VOBRT events.
