The National Veteran Business Development Council is the original Veteran Owned Business Certification organization developed by Veterans, for Veterans. The purpose is to provide a credible and reliable certifying authority for all size businesses ensuring that valid documentation exists of a Veterans status, ownership and operational control.

Many lucrative business opportunities are available to Veteran Owned Businesses through the Supplier Diversity programs offered at many corporations and government agencies. In fact, the total spend available from corporations to qualifying Veteran businesses is estimated to be in excess of $80 Billion annually.

The existing Federal Government verification program (CVE) only recognizes small businesses.   The NVBDC certifies all sizes of SD/VOBs using industry best practices and includes medium and large businesses.

With the NVBDC’s FASTRACK process, businesses that have already received existing Minority Status with the any of the following organizations can qualify for Veteran Owned Business Certification in as little as 30 days.

  • National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC)
  • The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC)
  • National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC)

Businesses that do not qualify for FASTRACK, may still be able to get certified in as little as 60 days after their completed application and supporting documents are submitted for review.
