Talk to a VBE Expert
Veteran-Business Enterprise (VBE) Certification is designed for companies 51% owned and operated by a United States Veteran. State-level certifications like the VBE offer more accessible qualification criteria than their federal counterparts.
More so, the VBE Certification will connect you to enormous purchasing networks such as Fortune 1000 companies and Government agencies spending millions of dollars.
An average entity cannot sell to corporate or nationally known companies. Equipped with a VBE Certification, your business will have access to large companies looking to meet their set-aside goals. You’ll also enjoy an overall advantage compared to companies not VBE certified through spending in State, Local, and Municipal Government set-aside for businesses like yours. Check out some more benefits below.
- Access to State Government budgets
- Training and educational programs exclusive to Veteran-owned businesses
- Networking opportunities
- Connections with buyers looking to meet subcontracting goals
- Access to purchasing agents
- Mentorship programs
Eligibility for the Veteran-Business Enterprise state certification is far easier than the VOSB/SDVOSB Certification at the Federal Level. This opens up doors to businesses that cannot qualify for Federal certifications.

- 100% of the assets of a sole proprietorship
- At least 51% of the equity interests in a partnership
- At least 51% of the aggregate of all stock outstanding
- At least 51% of the membership interests in a limited liability company
