What is VeteransBizUp?

What is VeteransBizUp?
VeteransBizUp is a one day conference developed to educate and provide services for veterans and military spouses in health/wellness, career, and business. Our mission is to provide positive reinforcement on how to manage life challenges related to transitioning from military to civilian life, and provide resource information that can help them leverage lucrative career or entrepreneurship opportunities. Areas of interests include:

Military to Civilian Career Transition Strategies * Recruitment and Job Placement
Workforce Development Services

Veteran-Owned Small Business Development Programs * Government Contracting Opportunities
Business Pitch Competition * Incubator Services

Health and Wellness Strategies & Mentoring Support Services
Homeless and Suicide Prevention Services * Life Coaching Services

What Information will be provided?
The type of information provided will consist of breakout workshops throughout the day that will give  "how-to instruction", and information needed to be successful.  We partnered with certified professionals and experts who will perform the workshops and give you what you need to know. Each presenter is prepared to provide a number of handouts or resources that you can reference and put into immediate action. Each breakout session will be held in a small intimate setting where you will have their opportunity to not only receive the lecture, but also ask questions and receive quality feedback.

Who is Eligible to Attend and participate?
This conference is intended for military servants, veterans and their spouse, and veteran-owned businesses. We are seeking Veteran-Owned Businesses to exhibit and display their products and services. However, we encourage other non-veteran/military related family members, groups and businesses to attend.

How can I Attend?
Registration is required to attend. Registration for the 2020 conference will open September 2019.

Can I Support the Cause?
You can help through sponsorship, exhibiting, making a donation to "sponsor a vet" to attend or through volunteering.  We are also accepting other type of support or materials to be shared during the conference. If you are interested in supporting, please contact us at info@veteransbizup.com.

Your investment is tax-deductible. All sales from sponsor/exhibit and ticket sales will be donated to a local charity in the Maryland area that serve veterans and their families.

Will food be served?
General Admission tickets include full access to all networking and breakout sessions including early-morning breakfast and lunch.
