Review for SOUTHWEST VETERANS BUSINESS RESOURCE CENTER, Perris, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Southwest Veterans' Business Resource Center (SWVBRC) excels in connecting local citizens and Veteran-owned businesses to assist both in reaching their goals. SCVBRC offers free business training throughout the year both in person and via webinars. These training offerings are available to all who can access the SWVBRC site (again, for free) at https://www.wherecommunitiesserveveterans.org/. This all-volunteer organization is an example of how grass roots advocacy can improve local communities. Finally, SWVBRC's signature event, the Annual Small Business Summit draws hundreds of buyers and sellers and has successfully matched businesses with individuals and other businesses for win-win situations for all.

Review for SOUTHWEST VETERANS BUSINESS RESOURCE CENTER, Perris, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

The Southwest Veterans Business Resource Center (SWVBRC) slogan - "Where Communities Serve Veterans" - describes how this organization is different than other business and Veterans assistance organizations. SWVBRC pulls in the community to make a difference and provides hands on training and one-on-one mentoring and coaching to assist Veterans in their business endeavors.
For example, the SWVBRC launched a video training series to prepare military and Veteran-owned businesses (and spouse-owned businesses) for the SWVBRC seventh annual Business Summit to be held on Feb. 26 - Feb. 27 in Oceanside, CA. The purpose of this series is to provide business owners the knowledge and tools they need to be procurement ready. The first two sessions, sponsored by USVetsTV, have received over 1500 views in less than two months and have attracted speakers from the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Small Business Administration, and small business owners.
The SWVBRC is making a difference for Veteran-owned small businesses, not just in the southwest, but coast to coast. Its volunteers are committed, and its board is driven by a stated Goals & Objectives and bound by a Letter of Acceptance to meet the board's purpose according to written standards. The SWVBRC truly is a "great nonprofit."
