Helping Support Our Veterans, Veteran Business Owners and their families
The Veteran Owned Business Roundtable is devoted to ‘serve those who have served.’

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION
Our efforts are dedicated to the benefit of all Veteran Owned Businesses. The Roundtable was formed in 2005 in response to State of Michigan legislation establishing a goal of 3% of state contracts to be awarded to Veteran (VOSB) and Service Disabled Veteran Owned Businesses (SDVOSB).
The VOBRT supports the Vets First Verification Program. The program offers Verified firms owned and controlled by Veterans and Service-disabled Veterans the opportunity to compete for set asides by the Veteran Administration and other government agencies.
