COASPIRE’s CEO RECEIVES VETERAN INSTITUTE FOR PROCUREMENT GROW CERTIFICATION
CoAspire obtains excellent Govcon information to accelerate growth in the federal space
Fairfax, VA, January 31, 2019; CoAspire, LLC recently completed the Veteran Institute Procurement (VIP) GROW Program, a comprehensive training and certification program that helps veteran-owned businesses strengthen their ability to win government contracts and do business with both military and civilian agencies they once served in uniform.
On January 24, 2019, CoAspire was one of 54 businesses from 16 states and the District of Columbia to graduate from the Veteran Institute for Procurement (VIP) GROW Program.
CoAspire’s CEO, Doug Denneny said, “The coursework we were taught was invaluable and timely for our company as we are in an aggressive growth stage as a federal contractor.”
The first program of its kind in the nation, VIP GROW is conducted by professional subject-matter specialists in the essentials necessary to win government contracts: law, accounting, insurance, human resources, marketing and proposals. It also provides participants with access to Federal and prime contracting executives along with a national network of veteran owned small businesses that they can team with on opportunities.
Since its launch in 2009, VIP GROW has helped 831 service-disabled and veteran-owned small businesses grow. A survey of 426 of the program's graduates determined that the size of their businesses increased by an average of 64% within a year of graduating from the Institute. More than 82% of surveyed graduates credited VIP GROW for equipping them to make recent business decisions and avoid unseen pitfalls. Additionally, veteran-owned businesses are more likely to hire, mentor and train other war veterans as they transition to private life, which is a national priority.
"We are honored to give back to the men and women who served our country by providing them with the tools necessary to succeed as government contractors." said Barbara Ashe, President of the Montgomery County Chamber Community Foundation. “We hope this training fosters their success as businesses and employers.”
VIP GROW is a three-day, 27-hour comprehensive certification program. Participants must be a C-level leader in a Veteran-owned small business operating for at least two years with a minimum of 3 full time employees, and experience working on government contracts as a prime and/or sub-contractor to a prime. With volunteer instructors and at no cost to participants, VIP GROW is fully funded by the Montgomery County Chamber Community Foundation, partners, and VIP sponsors.
