Who are we:
Veteran Owned UK was set up by a former British Army Royal Engineer to help support ex-military business owners.
We noticed that supporting Veteran Owned Businesses has been very popular in the USA, but has very little presence in the UK. We wanted to change this so we started the first and original Veteran Owned Business Directory for the UK.
We have an active Social Media scene which all help to move traffic here to the website. Please have a good look around, and let us know what you think.
We offer various levels of membership to suit everybody. The main aim of the site is to support Veteran Owned Businesses so ultimately any veteran who owns a business can enter the directory for FREE.
We also offer paid membership for those looking to get more bang from their place in the Directory or those Non-veteran Owned Businesses who wish to offer a discount or additional benefit to serving or veterans of the British Armed Forces.
To find out more, go to our Membership page.
The vision for Veteran Owned UK is to be a user friendly online portal for the public to find a Veteran Owned Business that supplies a product or service that they require. Once they find the business type they are looking for, they can use that and directly support a veteran.
When I started this website, one veteran told me that he loved the idea as he didn't want to be treated as a victim or to be seen as "broken" because he was a veteran. There are lot's of charities doing amazing work for veterans who need support. What we at Veteran Owned UK want to do is give those working to make their own mark in the business world a boost to their chosen markets.
Ex-military are often driven, focused and adaptable. Many use these skills in "civi street" to become great employees, some decide to start their own business and these are the people we want to support. By using the Veteran Owned UK Directory, you can directly support Veterans in their new chosen career whilst utilising a service or purchasing a product that you needed anyway. It's a win:win situation.
Other's are starting to copy what we are doing here at Veteran Owned UK. We were the first Directory in the UK and continue to be the only Directory that's only focus is to drive the Veteran Owned Directory and not have multiple avenues that the Directory is just one arm.
All members are free to use the above logo to proudly show off their status as a Veteran Owned Business.
