Veteran Business Ownership and Resources

​​​​​​The following groups can provide assistance if you need help in starting a business or have business related questions:

 Business Start-up and Financing Links

  • The Center for Verification and Evaluation Enterprise Web Portal – The principle purposes of this site are to provide information about the CVE verification process; to assist Veteran business owners in registering their business in the USDVA Secretary's Database of Veteran-owned small businesses and to enable VA contracting officers to easily identify Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSBs) and VOSBs eligible for procurement opportunities.
  • The Small Business Administration (SBA) - The SBA is the primary source for business loans and classes for starting a business. Please contact your local SBA office and ask for the Veterans Business Development Officer.  CalVet, the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (USDVA), and the Department of General Services (DGS) do not have programs for business start-up funding. Whether you're sitting down to write your business plan, wondering about your legal obligations, or researching your financing options, you'll find the information you need right here.
