DETROIT, MI, UNITED STATES, January 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The list of corporate sponsors continues to grow for The National Veterans Business Development Council (NVBDC). Announced today, DuPont has agreed to join the NVBDC as an annual sponsor. Founded in 1802, DuPont is one of the world’s most successful science and engineering enterprises. The Fortune 500 company is ranked as the fourth largest chemical company in the world.
“DuPont has a rich history of engaging with Veterans through our employees, products, and suppliers. For over 200 years we have made products to support those in harm’s way, including modern brands such as DuPont™ Kevlar® and Nomex® fibers. We are committed to veteran hiring initiatives and actively supporting veteran’s groups. Today, we are excited to carry on that legacy as we join forces with NVBDC as a corporate member, continuing to advance opportunities for Veteran-owned suppliers.”
– Rose Lee, Executive Sponsor, DuPont Veterans Network and President, DuPont Safety & Construction
“Every time a new sponsor joins our team, we see it as endorsement of our Certification Program. Since our mission at the NVBDC is to provide Service Disabled and Veteran Owned Businesses (SD/VOBs) with the tools to be successful, corporations like DuPont ensure we can continue to achieve our immediate and future goals” said Keith King, President of NVBDC.
Other corporations who support the NVBDC in certifying SD/VOBs include Kellogg's, AT&T, General Motors, Ford, JP Morgan Chase & Co., Delphi, PPG, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, Facebook, BMW, Google, Apple and the 27 corporations that are members of the Billion Dollar Roundtable.
“DuPont’s support of the NVBDC is critical to our growth,” King said, “and their sponsorship strengthens the opportunities available to our Veteran business owners. We will continue to work with large companies such as DuPont to seek out further opportunities for our Service Disabled and Veteran Business Owners.”
The NVBDC was launched in April 2014 and certifies SD/VOBs of ALL sizes. The National Certification Program allows SD/VOBs access to Supplier Diversity Programs, making this credential a crucial component to their business success.
The NVBDC is the only Veteran Owned Business Certification organization developed by Veterans, for Veterans. The purpose is to provide a credible and reliable certifying authority for all size businesses ensuring that valid documentation exists of Veteran ownership and control.
