DVBE Magazine Overview
The Disabled Veteran Business Empowerment (DVBE) Magazine will be the required reading for Disabled Veteran and Veteran Business owners and senior level executives and managers that own, manage or supervise those businesses that operate under the small business certifications for Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE), or Service Veteran Owned Small Business (SVOSB).
These small business owners (500 employees or less), medium business owners (500 to 1000 employees), and large corporate business owners (1000 employees or more) are already anticipating relying on our on-point news stories and editorials, whether online or quarterly in print, for practical solutions to avoid turnover and to better understand developmental strategies to avoid being burned on governmental projects by large Primes.
The DVBE Magazine will also provide extensive coverage on economic and political changes affecting all segments of governmental small business goals; and engaging, insightful stories and profiles of emerging and established Disabled Veteran and Veteran business owners, projects, companies, and initiatives that would and could impact our industry.
Having operated his own Service Disabled Veteran business since 1999, Mr. Woolfolk decided that a business and educational magazine like DVBE Magazine was necessary and needed due to the many veterans that need direction in the beginning, managing and operating successful business enterprises. With thousands of disabled veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars returning from the battlefield and after overcoming many physical challenges, many will have no choice or option but to start businesses for employment.
In speaking with many returning disabled veterans and veterans, they realize the job market is tight or nonexistent for many career and employment opportunities. So many are choosing to go into business for themselves to utilize the leadership and team skills developed on the battlefield to lead them to a successful business and take advantage of federal sources sought projects with the Veteran Administration, the US Navy, the Department of Water Reclamation and state agencies that use federal funding on projects and must meet federal and state small business goals for disabled veteran business owners. These disabled Veterans are people who fearlessly headed into the battlefield, had to learn to become part of a team to become successful to return with their lives, then, had to overcome what appeared to be insurmountable odds in recovery and are still standing. Mr. Woolfolk has been one of them and has operated one of the premier SDVOSB/ DVBE firms called VIRTEK Company since 1999.
