Veterans Business Outreach Center at Community Business Partnership
On May 1, 2015, Community Business Partnership was designated as the Veterans Business Outreach Center (VBOC) for the National Capital Region; including Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The VBOC is designed to provide entrepreneurial development services such as training, counseling and access to capital for eligible Veterans owning or considering starting a small business.
The VBOC assists clients in developing and maintaining a viable business plan. The business plan includes such elements as the business concept, legal entity and organizational structure of the business, industry and market analysis, and a financial plan. The core of this training is the Boots to Business (and Boots to Business REBOOT) program. Boots to Business is a three-step entrepreneurial education initiative offered by the SBA as an elective track within the Department of Defense's revised Transition Assistance Program.
The VBOC offers additional training in areas of interest to Veteran-owned businesses including government contracting, small business set-asides and SDVOSB/VOSB verification, business development and sales, public speaking and presentation skills, small business taxes and QuickBooks, hiring and retaining quality employees, and much more!
Our staff and volunteer experts provide one-on-one counseling sessions on specific business issues including business plan review, growth and strategic planning, marketing, business development and sales, financial forecasting, funding options, bookkeeping and accounting, small business taxes, registration and certification (including review of 8a, WOSB and SDVOSB/VOSB certification applications), government contracting, review of legal documents, and intellectual property.
Finally, the VBOC offers regular opportunities for Veteran business owners (and their supporters) to gather and network. Such opportunities include the Annual Veterans in Business Conference, monthly peer group roundtables and Objective Rally Point (www.dc-orp.com).
The Veterans Business Outreach Center (VBOC) at Community Business Partnership is funded in part through a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
