VAMBOA and brazzlebox for VAMBOAThe Veteran and Military Business Owners Association (VAMBOA) is partnering with Brazzlebox to provide more services to Veteran owned businesses. This co-op is great news for Veteran entrepreneurs!

At VAMBOA, we are proud to provide resources and information for our members. To that end, we have joined forces with Brazzlebox, a social media website that is set to officially launch on September 18, 2014. The website is a networking resource, designed to connect and promote small and home-based businesses. Brazzlebox will allow small owners to create profiles and setup their own custom outreach, based not only on their geographic location, but also their industry.

Brazzlebox’s Founder and CEO Glen Zinszer came up with the idea for the resource through his own experience as a small business owner. Zinszer has owned and operated a retail store and an insurance firm. Brazzlebox is intended to bring small business owners together in order to share ideas and experiences.

As a team, Brazzlebox and VAMBOA will provide Veteran and service-disabled Veteran small business owners with useful information for starting, maintaining and expanding their companies. The co-op will also allow VAMBOA members to use Brazzlebox to create a network of Veteran small business owners so that they can share knowledge, experience regarding their common needs, concerns and goals.

VAMBOA membership is free to all military and Veteran business owners.

The Veteran and Military Business Owners Association (VAMBOA) is a non-profit business trade association that promotes and assists Veteran Business Owners, Service Disabled Veteran Owned Businesses (SDVOB) and Military Business Owners. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and responsible for job generation. That is why VAMBOA provides its members with Business Coaching, Contracting Opportunities, a Blog that provides information, Networking contacts and other resources. Membership is FREE to Veterans. Join Now!
