The Mission of the San Diego chapter of the Disabled Veteran Business Alliance (DVBA) is to:

The Alliance is a vibrant organization that empowers, provides resources to, and works side-by-side with veterans to promote and support them in establishing, maintaining and growing viable business enterprises.

The Alliance has helped thousands achieve financial rehabilitation through entrepreneurship. We recognize that veterans’ experience in the military prepares them to be smart, capable entrepreneurs.

We help disabled veterans achieve the satisfaction, pride and independence that comes from running their own business.

Veterans come home with a strong sense of the value of discipline, hard work and leadership. They’ve worked in the most challenging circumstances imaginable and know they can accomplish anything with the right team.

We are here to be part of a veteran’s team as they build a new life through building a business.

 

We Empower Veterans

The USVBA is a vibrant organization that empowers, provides resources to, and works side-by-side with veterans to promote and support them in establishing, maintaining and growing viable business enterprises.

Our diverse, highly experienced veteran-led organization is made up of volunteers working within committees, chapters, advisory board and the corporate advisory board along with the national board of directors who govern and shape the future of the USVBA. Our contractors and staff are top notch, committed and passionate about managing the organization in a way that provides real value to our members. Thank you to each and everyone of you that are devoted to helping veteran owned businesses start, sustain or grow thereby providing purpose which helps the veteran, their family, the community and nation as a whole. Helping one another is an economic as well as moral imperative. We are a strong, tested, proven group that is anything but disabled.

We are twice as likely to be successful in business over other small businesses and we hire veterans at twice the rate. Our skills we learned while serving are tangible and that translates to reduced risk on the buyer’s end. We make up one out of every ten small businesses in this country and one out of every seven franchises yet we make up less than 1% of the population. Women veteran business owners are the fastest growing segment of any group. We contribute $6T in receipts and hire over 6B people. Our population is not shrinking-we are growing with over 2M veterans needing help in this space. Yes, in terms of population we are small but in terms of our contribution to the economy and this country-we are mighty!

We’re the longest running organization whose sole focus has been on Veterans entrepreneurship. Our experience has made us a model for other states. We believe in the power of business innovation to help veterans achieve their full potential in life.

 

We Help Veterans Reach Success

With the combination of a diverse, accomplished, and passionate Board of Directors and professional staff enables the U.S. Veteran Business Alliance to implement its vision of honoring service and empowering success, we believe in the power of business innovation to help veterans achieve their full potential in life.

Beside the standard information any new business owner needs, the Alliance provides experienced U.S. Veteran business owners to act as mentors and consultants to the prospective fellow Veteran entrepreneur.

The Alliance will also develop a market place for older Veterans to sell their established, successful business to younger Veterans, giving them a leg up in the challenge of business ownership while preserving all the assets created by the original owner.

Our diverse, highly experienced veteran-led organization is made up of volunteers working within committees, chapters, advisory board and the corporate advisory board along with the national board of directors who govern and shape the future of the USVBA.
