Veteran Owned Business Project Surpasses 36,000 Member Milestone
VOB reaches major milestone just days prior to 13th Anniversary (Veterans Day)
MELBOURNE, Fla., October 29th, 2021 — Veteran Owned Business (VOB) recently announced that membership has surpassed 36,000 members just in time for National Veteran Small Business Week ( #VeteransSmallBusinessWeek ) and a few days prior to VOB’s 13th Anniversary (Veterans Day 2021).
Launched on Veterans Day 2008, VOB (VeteranOwnedBusiness.com) is a nationwide network of businesses owned by veterans, active duty military, reservists and military spouses as well as nonprofit organizations who in one way or another help impact the lives of those in the military community.
Veteran Owned Business is a free online portal that helps businesses owned by prior military members share their products and services with purchasing departments around the country as well as with fellow veterans and everyday consumers. Since launching on Veterans Day 2008, the Veteran Owned Business Project has grown from a simple online directory to a comprehensive network with over 36,000 members nationwide and over 400,000 supporters. The site has had over 50,000,000 visitors and over 150,000,000 pages viewed since launching. Site users include purchasing personnel from small businesses, government agencies and some of the world’s largest corporations. The easy to use interface also allows the average consumer a quick way to search for products and services that are all unique in the fact that they are made by, serviced by and/or sold by United States military veterans.
“We have to give thanks to our members and for the millions of supporters, visitors and site users who’ve helped us turn this grassroots movement into what is now an engaging, patriotic small business marketing tool,” said VOB’s founder, Brian K. St.Ours. “Our continued growth is directly attributed to members and supporters who go out of their way to try and do business with those who proudly served our great nation!”
Businesses owned by veterans (as well as active duty military and military spouses) can get a free membership and business profile by visiting VeteranOwnedBusiness.com and looking for the red “signup button”. Enhancement options are available for certain business profiles for a nominal fee.
The above information is brought to you by Veteran Owned Business.
If your business is (or you know of another business) owned by a veteran (VOB), active duty military, reservist or military spouse of the United States, Army, Air Force, Marines, Navy, Coast Guard or National Guard, please be sure to visit the sign up page to get your membership and business’ profile.
The objective of our FREE Veteran Owned Business Directory is to continue to offer a growing list of products and services that are unique in the fact that they are all owned by, sold by and/or serviced by past and present military members!
