Over at Veteran Journal, there’s an interesting interview with Tom Leney, the Executive Director of Small and Veterans Business Programs with the Department of Veterans Affairs, regarding the upcoming National Veterans Small Business Conference. We blogged upon the convention in a previous post. Click through to read the whole interview, and bear this fact in mind when thinking about attending:
We did [a] survey with over 70 respondents from a conference we did in Detroit, and 25 percent of the survey respondents from the 2012 [National Veterans Small Business Conference] said they received a contract award based on someone they met there or information they received there. That’s a pretty significant return on investment.
