DeKalb County Online and The DeKalb American Legion are seeking information on DeKalb County Veteran-owned businesses.
The DeKalb County Veteran Owned Business Project 21 will be a member network directory of small, medium, and large businesses owned by veterans, service-disabled veterans, active-duty military, reservists, and military spouses located in or serving the DeKalb County area.
The American Legion would like to list and support all Veteran Owned businesses and activities that provide services and products to DeKalb County and the surrounding area.
Included in the listing will also be ‘non-veteran owned businesses’ that offer discounts to current military or veterans.
In addition, there will be information about additional support from various agencies. For example, the SBA offers support for veterans as they enter the world of business ownership. Look for funding programs, training, and federal contracting opportunities.
If you are a DeKalb County Veteran Owned business or know of any, please contact Michael Embrey, at 815-756-1263 or e-mail: FunMEevents@aol.com with business name, contact, phone, and e-mail address.
