Mission: ” Connecting Veteran entrepreneurs and business owners with the resources they need to be successful in the marketplace.”
Vision: “To see a community that recognizes the benefit of Veteran owned business and a marketplace that rewards the entrepreneurial spirit of our service men and women and demonstrates our appreciation for their service to our country.”
The Utah Veteran Owned Business Partnership (UVOBP) is a consortium of agencies and organizations dedicated to helping our veterans and service members have success in business. The Resources on this page are designed to assist Veterans who are currently or have a desire to become business owners. The UVOBP includes representatives from the Utah Department of Veterans and Military Affairs, Governor’s Office of Economic Development, Salt Lake County, Small Business Administration, Salt Lake Chamber, higher education, non-profit entities, veteran service organizations, and local businesses.
Our department is also in conjunction with the VBRC and Jackie Hobson. The Veterans Business Resource Center (VBRC) ensures that veteran entrepreneurs and their family members have the best resources available to start or grow a business in Utah. The VBRC works closely with the Utah Veteran-Owned Business Partnership to help serve the 17,000 veteran-owned business and veteran entrepreneurs throughout the state.
