The Veterans In Business Conference - http://www.veteransbusinessconference.com/index.html provides education, networking and business opportunities for Veteran and Service Disabled Veteran Small Business Owners. The conference was created by civic and business leaders in Northern Virginia to provide training and exposure to veterans who wish to grow their businesses through contracting and subcontracting opportunities with the Federal Government. Due to the close proximity to Washington, D.C., and the long list of prime contractors who call Fairfax County home, the conference provided a unique exposure to many of the small business offices from the Federal Government and the corporations that often need VOSBs (Veteran-Owned Small Businesses) and SDVOSBs (Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses) to join their teams.
