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

National Veterans Transition Services, The San Diego Veterans Coalition and Veteran Entrepreneurs Today (V.E.T.) invites veterans, active military, corporate partners, and innovators to develop connections and insights.

Business Ownership

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

Veteran Entrepreneurs Summit

The 2018 Veteran Entrepreneurs Summit presents an opportunity to network, meet business leaders and elected officials in a groundbreaking event.  And, introducing the first-in- the- nation Round Table Brainstorming Sessions where each Vetrepreneur has the chance to dialogue with experts and other business owners in a dynamic group experience.

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