The Largest So Cal Gathering of Veteran and Military Business Owners
About Us

Formed in 2012, The San Diego Veterans Coalition is the premier San Diego County-wide monthly convener of over 150 unique member and participating organizations, businesses, and agencies. Our Mission is to be a catalyst that inspires collaboration and cooperation among service partners to deliver premier support for Veterans and their families in the San Diego region.

Business Ownership

We believe business ownership is an exciting and liberating alternative to the frustrating and often futile job hunt. Our second annual event brings together veteran entrepreneurs, local businesses, and corporate partners for a day-long, intensive, practical event to encourage and support military, veterans, and spouse business owners in their quest to independence.

Veteran Entrepreneurs Summit

The 2018 Veteran Entrepreneurs Summit presents an opportunity to network, meet business leaders and connect with subject matter experts at this groundbreaking event.  And, introducing two new features this year: connect with mentors through Focus and participate in the “Pitch- Session” where selected Vetrepreneurs have the chance to “pitch” their business to real angel investors.

Don’t Miss This Great Opportunity to Connect and Learn from the Best!
