We are proud to say in just a few short weeks since going live we were able to approve 538 veteran owned businesses in VeteranOwnedBusiness.com. As many of you know, the submission process has 5 steps. We had originally received nearly 2,500 pre-listed sign ups. We decided to contact each person who submitted their business for a listing to ask that each resubmit their company’s information. The entire process is time consuming; however, we were able to successfully add 538 by the end of 2008 which was 38 more than our original plan.
We anticipate we will have over 1,000 veteran owned businesses listed in VeteranOwnedBusiness.com within the first quarter of 2009.
If you submitted your company’s information prior to November 11, 2008 (Veteran’s Day) and haven’t heard back from a member of our approval department, please revisit our veteran owned business sign up page to re-enter your information.
