10 yearsWelcome to VETS'20

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.

VETS'20 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.

Do you run a Veteran-owned or service-disabled Veteran-owned small business (VOSB/SDVOSB) and want to work with the government? Or do you want to team with a Veteran-owned company but aren’t sure how? Are you ready to take your business to the next level?

The National Veteran Small Business Coalitions has created VETS to help you accomplish your small business goals. The conference will provide you with the information you need to navigate the Federal acquisition process – from the government perspective as well as from successful veteran small business owners.

VETS connects thriving Veteran business owners with emerging Veteran entrepreneurs to expose the knowledge needed to acquire government contracts and teaming opportunities. While attending, also expect to network with government agencies, large companies, and potential clients and customers.

Veterans who have attained success are one of the best resources to help other Veterans follow suit. Register Now and see your small business succeed!

scottDear Attendee,

The mission of the National Veteran Small Business Coalition (NVSBC) is to transition Veterans into business owners. VETS'19 is designed to do just that. Our goal is to build capacity in the Veteran and Service-disabled Veteran-owned small business community to help the Federal government and large business prime contractors meet and exceed the mandated goals. This can only happen with a strong and vibrant Veteran small business community. The NVSBC is pleased to again join forces with AetherQuest Solutions, a Veteran-owned small business, to host VETS'19 at our new conference location: San Antonio, Texas aka "Military City USA."

We will build on the success of previous VETS to host an intimate forum of Government and industry leaders as well as successful Veteran small business owners to shorten the learning curve and bring the next generation of Veteran small business owners success in the Federal marketplace. Each symposium has grown based on the success of the past and this year will be no different.

The NVSBC understands the Federal marketplace is changing due to shrinking budgets and the changing missions of agencies. We intend to bring you the latest on how these trends may impact your business and identify ways to protect your business from these trends. Attendance at VETS'19 will be limited to ensure the intimate atmosphere and ability to engage experts during the sessions and throughout the event. Our goal is not to host the biggest veteran business conference, only the best!

We hope you will join us in San Antonio to grow your business, network with other Veteran business owners, agency and prime contractor representatives, and show all the Veteran business movement is alive and well.


Scott Denniston, Executive Director
National Veteran Small Business Coalition (NVSBC)
