DETROIT, Aug. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Veterans Business Development Council (NVBDC) recently opened their 2018 National Survey of Veteran Owned Businesses. The survey was created to identify the landscape of the more than 2.5 million Service Disabled and Veteran Owned Businesses (SD/VOBs) in the United States. "You don't need to be certified to participate in the survey, we encourage all veteran business owners to participate. Our mandate is to provide access to corporate opportunities for SD/VOBs, and by participating in the national survey, we hope to learn as much as we can about Veteran Business owners," said Keith King, President NVBDC.

The National Veteran Business Development Council (NVBDC) is dedicated to promoting Veterans and Veteran Owned Businesses in the United States and all US territories. Your answers will help us formulate and communicate the needs of our Veterans to major US corporations and government agenci

NVBDC believes the survey is significant because it will provide an overview of both certified Veteran Business Owners, and companies who may be considering certification. As the leading veteran certification agency, NVBDC is also looking forward to the upcoming National Veteran Business Matchmaker held in Detroit on September 10th and 11th. At last year's event, NVBDC tripled their attendance records and are on track for another success. With buyers from major corporations and government agencies in attendance, as well as the Vets Night Out networking event, it promises to be a dynamic opportunity for SD/VOBs.

All reporting will remain anonymous. If companies wish for their information to be shared with NVBDC's corporate partners, there is an option to grant permission in the survey. NVBDC hopes to learn as much about Veteran owned businesses as possible in order for NVBDC to best represent our veterans within corporate America, especially within the supplier diversity space.
