About the WVCC

The Wisconsin Veterans Chamber of Commerce unites small business owners, corporate executives, and community leaders to empower and support veterans and military-connected families. Bridging the gap between various community segments and the business world, WVCC welcomes all types of businesses and organizations, including veteran-owned, military-friendly, entrepreneurs, and corporate executives across every industry. Our partnerships extend to businesses of all sizes.

The WVCC is dedicated to creating an environment where members, whether veterans, the corporations employing them, organizations serving their families, or those seeking military-connected partnerships, can access the tools and knowledge needed for growth and success. By fostering connections among small businesses and larger organizations, the WVCC provides opportunities for members to expand their networks and potential customer base.

Through a diverse network of members and community partners, we prioritize accelerating business growth. Acting as a matchmaker, we facilitate connections through support, strategic networking, collaboration, and educational workshops, ultimately uniting businesses to grow our community.
