Certify Your Diverse Business With These Programs

NaVOBA

National Veteran-Owned Business Association (NaVOBA) strives to ensure US military veterans are granted equal access and inclusion in corporate supplier diversity programs. NaVOBA’s mission is to maximize marketplace and supply chain access and competitiveness for America’s Veteran’s and Service-Disabled Veteran’s Business Enterprises (VBEs/SDVBEs) through certification, advocacy, outreach, education, and recognition. NaVOBA is America’s exclusive certifier of Veteran’s Business Enterprises® and a leading advocate for veteran-owned businesses and entrepreneurs. NaVOBA is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization governed by corporations to ensure its alignment with the needs of corporate supplier diversity programs.

Certifying veteran-owned businesses is the core of the NaVOBA’s mission, along with connecting NaVOBA-Certified Veteran’s and Service-Disabled Veteran’s Business Enterprises® (VBEs/SDVBEs) with NaVOBA’s corporate allies. NaVOBA’s world-class certification is accepted by an ever-increasing number of Fortune 1000 corporations as well as states, cities, and other entities. NaVOBA’s certifications directly mirror the MBE and WBE certifications and ensure that any certified VBE is at least 51 percent owned, operated, and controlled by one or more US military veterans. NaVOBA certification creates opportunities for “vetrepreneurs” to become suppliers to corporate America while simultaneously helping corporations accurately measure their VBE and SDVBE spending.
