Vet Matchmaking
Since our beginning, we have focused on veterans, including disabled vets, who are starting or growing companies in many industries. The tremendous influx of veterans, particularly in California, and the desire of the great many to become entrepreneurs has enabled us to create a fully functioning division to service America's heroes, their families and supporters.

Vet Matchmaking will offer a speaker's bureau, procurement events, seminars and workshops.

Col. Don Gonneville (USA-Ret), former West Point instructor and Green Beret in Vietnam, will be chairman of the Vet Matchmaking organization which is partnered with state and federal agencies in presenting critical information for the military community.
