Federal Marketplace Conference Designed by Vets for Vets
Falls Church, VA – Doing business with the Federal government can be a frustrating and time consuming journey. In order to be successful in the Federal marketplace, veterans need to stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before. VETS2012, held this week in Reno, NV, is designed by veteran small business owners for veteran small business owners. Aimed at shortening the learning curve and bringing the next generation of veteran small business owners success, this annual intimate forum of Government and industry leaders is organized by the National Veteran Small Business Coalition (NVSBC).
Three Wire Systems, LLC CEO Dan Frank, NVSBC Board member, will be on hand in Reno to mentor fellow Vetrepreneurs. “VETS2012 is important in furthering the cause of veteran-owned small businesses in the government contracting marketplace,” Frank states. “I know what it takes to get a business up and running and am always inspired by the drive and success of my fellow veterans.”
In addition to mentoring Frank will provide insight and answers to the questions younger veterans starting a business may have. One goal of the conference is for young, energetic veterans coming off active duty to learn from entrepreneurs who have seen the good, the bad and the ugly of owning a business. “I look forward to the VETS experience each year because I learn as much as I teach,” says Frank. “I joined the NVSBC Board because of how invaluable I find the veteran community. It’s all about veterans helping veterans.”
