OMAHA: VETERANS IN BUSINESS FORUM, VIBF
Veterans in Business Forum
“The mission of the Veterans in Business Forum, VIBF, is to provide business support, education and advocacy to help veterans succeed in business and increase community awareness of veteran-owned business activities.”
Veterans, active duty, reservists and civilians are welcome to join and support each other and veteran-related goals.
Meeting Day and Time
The VIBF meets the first Friday of every month (0800-0900) and serves the Omaha area, including Council Bluffs, Papillion, La Vista, Gretna, Springfield, Plattsmouth, and Bellevue.
Veteran Business and Networking/Outreach
We work with other veteran groups and organizations to network and outreach with NBDC (Nebraska Business Development Center), PTAC (Procurement Technical Assistance Center), SBA (Small Business Administration), SCORE, contracting officers and meet-the-buyer events.
VIBF encourages collaboration through networking. Each month, members can bring up issues and concerns to discuss with the group to get recommendations to help come up with effective solutions.
