The twenty eight corporations that make up the Billion Dollar Roundtable (BDR) have voted to include Service Disabled and Veteran Owed Businesses (SD/VOBs) certified by the National Veteran Business Development Council (NVBDC) in their qualified diversity spend.
“This incredible next step in recognizing and accepting our certified SD/VOBs changes the entire market. The NVBDC is honored to have been named by the members of the BDR as their accepted SD/VOB certification body. To fully understand what this means to our veteran business owners; they must now accept their responsibility to adopt and embrace the corporate certification standards. We cannot stress enough that Veteran Businesses must realize the corporate certification standards are different than what the VA/CVE offers. Self-certification is obsolete and with this announcement the BDR has made it clear that certification of SD/VOBs must meet their “best practice” corporate standards,” said Keith King, President of the NVBDC.
The BDR stated:
“This is a giant leap forward for all SD/VOBs who have been seeking recognition by America’s leading corporations and want to pursue economic opportunities with them. We have to thank the members of the BDR for their leadership and encouragement of all corporations to begin tracking, reporting and focusing on Veteran business diversity spend. As a veteran and a business owner myself this announcement from the BDR is a game changer and it is our Veteran business owners responsibility to know that the opportunity comes with conditions”, concluded King.
PROUDLY SUPPORTED BY:
Corporate America and Government Agencies are supporters of the NVBDC certification program. All have pledged to assist certified service disabled and veteran-owned business in competing for opportunities supplying needed goods and services.
The National Veteran Business Development Council is the only Veteran Owned Business Certification organization developed by Veterans, for Veterans. The purpose is to provide a credible and reliable certifying authority for all size businesses ensuring that valid documentation exists of Veteran ownership and control.
We believe that our certification program is the one opportunity that will benefit every Veteran Business Owner, their family, their community and the Nation by giving them the certification they will need to do business with State Governments, Federal agencies and the leading corporations in America!
