VIP is a certification training program designed for veteran-owned companies to increase their ability to win government contracts by establishing best business practices. VIP arms veteran-owned small businesses to win contracts in the Federal Marketplace. VIP participants are provided with specific knowledge and best practices to help accelerate their businesses. Some of the session topics include Strategic Planning in the Federal Marketplace, Financing Solutions in the Federal Marketplace, Labor Rules & Regulations: Federal Market Compliance, and Marketing to Win.

“We are thrilled to see so many of our graduates included in this year’s esteemed list,” said Barbara Ashe, National Director of VIP. “By providing participants with hands-on, market-based instruction from industry and government experts, it’s no surprise that our graduates continue to be some of the fastest growing companies in the nation,” Ashe continued.
