Veteran Small Business Stakeholders
The DC Mayor's Office of Veteran's Affairs has partnered with the DC Department of Small & Local Business Development to launch a monthly Veterans' Business Stakeholders meeting (held the first Tuesday of each month) which consists of members from the veteran entrepreneur community with businesses headquartered in Washington, DC. The aim of this meeting is to build stronger support for our local veteran businesses through government and community support. Overall, MOVA is exploring the creation of programs to better serve the needs of the District's vetreprenuers.
We held our first meeting on December 2017, and are building regular, monthly engagements. Stakeholders are always an open forum, and anyone interested in the topic is welcome and encouraged to come out. If you require accommodations, please do not hesitate to reach out to [email protected] or give us a call at (202) 724-5454.
