Meet Ally.

VBOC History

Following a 1999 law to promote veteran participation in the entrepreneurship and small business field, the Small Business Association created and established a number of VBOCs. We help strengthen our client’s business by providing education and resources, with the understanding that military service has set-up veterans to be fine entrepreneurs.

VBOC Training and Services

Our Boots to Business (B2B) training is designed to equip you with the skills, knowledge, and resources needed to launch a business. B2B outlines the steps for developing business concepts, establsihing a business plan, and shares information on SBA resources available to you. VBOC’s Boots to Business trainings are provided at no cost, with no strings attached.
