SDV INTERNATIONAL participated in an annual event to promote Veteran Owned companies that support the United States Government outside of our national borders. Participants at the event, hosted at George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia included Presidential Appointees and Senior Execuve Service Members from the Department of State (DOS), the United States Department Agency for International Development (USAID), the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).
Each agency addressed programs to drive more federal contracts to qualified Veteran Owned businesses. In addition, since its founding on July 30, 1953, the U.S. Small Business Administration has delivered millions of loans, loan guarantees, contracts, counseling sessions and other forms of assistance to small businesses.
The event was co-sponsored by SDV INTERNATIONAL and the Small Business Association of International Companies (SBAIC). Small Business Association for International Companies is a membership organization established to promote the meaningful utilization of U.S. small businesses at U.S. government agencies providing foreign assistance. SDV INTERNATIONAL’s President, Jason Roys, currently serves as the Co-Chair for Outreach at SBAIC. Learn more at www.SBAIC.org.
