“Our move to larger offices will prepare us for our next 15 years of training service members and their families to open or grow their businesses. The expansion is part of our Forward 15 Celebration of our first 15 years in operation and will ensure that the VBRC continues to meet its mission of providing world-class entrepreneurship education and counsel,” Darcella Craven, president (and chief fear conqueror) of VetBiz, said.
The Forward 15 Celebration is a fundraising and sustainability campaign that seeks to keep VetBiz’s business training services free and available to any current or former service member or family members. To learn more, visit vetbiz.com or call 314-531-VETS (8387).
