Opening CeremoniesThe Veteran Entrepreneur Training Symposium (VETS), June 16-19, 2014, is a Business Development Conference created by Veterans for Veterans.

The Goal: Provide the knowledge and relationships needed for Veterans to transition into Business Owners to service the Federal Government.

The Difference: The VETS agenda is crafted by Veterans already doing business with the Federal government—Veteran Entrepreneurs who have walked in your shoes.

VETS2014 will bring together Federal agencies, Prime contractors, and Veterans to discuss how to take full advantage of the Federally mandated contracting opportunities set aside specifically for Veteran-owned small businesses.

VETS2014 is focused on one thing—the success of your Veteran-owned Small Business. Will you be a part of the conversation?

VETS 2018 is focused on one thing—the success of your Veteran-owned Small Business. Will you be a part of the conversation?
