One hundred and fifty years ago today, President Lincoln signed a law establishing the first federal veterans’ facility for disabled Civil War veterans. This facility gave root to the Department of Veterans Affairs’ assistance programs.

Today, the VA offers many benefits and services to eligible veterans and connects our military service men and women with resources across the country. Share this information with a veteran you know, or an organization that helps veterans.

Veterans Small Business Double Play

October 31, 2016 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:45 p.m.
330 Building, 330 2nd Ave S., 1st Floor Conference Room, Minneapolis, MN 55401

Participants have the option of registering for one or both of the following FREE sessions:
Topic I: Veteran Certification for Government Contracting The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is required by Public Law 1009-461 to limit competition for contracts to only Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSBs) as long as there are two or more SDVOSBs expected to compete. If the VA cannot find two or more SDVOSBs, the VA can limit the competition to only Veteran Owned Small Businesses. To be eligible for these set-asides, SDVOSBs and VOSBs must be verified by the VA. The state of Minnesota also recognizes the VA certification for its contracting programs. Attendees will learn how to apply for certification/verification and how to make the most of the certification once their application is approved.
Topic II: Financing Your Venture Helps veterans understand the resources required to execute on their venture concept; understand the different opportunities to fund start-up and subsequent growth; opportunities and challenges associated with each. Learn how SBA bank funding partners can save you money and help you achieve funding of your venture.
