The New Mexico Veterans’ Business Outreach Center
The New Mexico Veterans’ Business Outreach Center (VBOC) was created by the New Mexico Department of Veterans’ Services to help entrepreneurial-minded veterans and their spouses in the southwest and southern Colorado to achieve their small business goals. It was the first state-funded center in the nation created specifically to help veterans and is funded through a grant from the SBA.
Nationwide, veterans own nearly 1 in 10 businesses that generate more than $1 trillion in sales annually. Each year the SBA helps more than 200,000 veterans,
service-disabled veterans and reservists to start or grow their small businesses.
The VBOC is located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, but provides service free of charge to any veteran. For more information about the VBOC, contact VBOC Director Rich Coffel at richardL.coffel@state.nm.us or (505) 383-2401.
