This Veterans Day, Disability:IN proudly introduces a unique program aimed at supporting established Service-Disabled Veteran Disability-Owned Business Enterprises (SDV-DOBE) ready to advance sustainable business growth.

This comprehensive eight-month development initiative unites fifty service-disabled veteran business owners, fifty Disability:IN corporate partner mentors, and subject-matter experts. Together, they will create a collaborative and engaging learning experience designed to elevate these businesses to new heights.

About the Program:


Each mentor will be paired with an SDV-DOBE owner for an eight-month mentoring relationship designed to complement the virtual learning curriculum. A mentoring training webinar will be provided to those accepted into the program, and it is expected that the mentorship pairs meet at least twice monthly.
