Important Announcement: We Are Moving!
The Community Business Partnership (CBP) mission is to foster regional economic development by supporting entrepreneurs and small/disadvantaged businesses by providing the resources needed to assist you with executing your vision.
The programs and services at CBP continue to grow – and we have outgrown our current facility. We are excited to announce that we will be expanding services and moving to a new location on November 4th. The office will be closed on November 4th and will reopen at our new location on November 7th. All classes scheduled after November 5th will be at our new location.
To put your mind at ease, the new facility is only 9/10th of a mile from our current location. We will be located on the 6th floor of the Springfield Office Center at 6564 Loisdale Court, Suite 600, Springfield, VA 22150, which is on the same road as the Hilton, next to hhgregg, and across from Springfield Town Center. We will be doubling our office space and adding more services which will be announced in the New Year. The new location has plenty of parking, 3 elevators, 2 building entrances and commuter services.
Our goal is to make this transition as smooth as possible with the least amount of disruption to your business.

Veterans Business Outreach Center at Community Business Partnership
On May 1, 2015, Community Business Partnership was designated as the Veterans Business Outreach Center (VBOC) for the National Capital Region; including Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The VBOC is designed to provide entrepreneurial development services such as training, counseling and access to capital for eligible Veterans owning or considering starting a small business.
The VBOC assists clients in developing and maintaining a viable business plan. The business plan includes such elements as the business concept, legal entity and organizational structure of the business, industry and market analysis, and a financial plan. The core of this training is the Boots to Business (and Boots to Business REBOOT) program. Boots to Business is a three-step entrepreneurial education initiative offered by the SBA as an elective track within the Department of Defense's revised Transition Assistance Program.
The VBOC offers additional training in areas of interest to Veteran-owned businesses including government contracting, small business set-asides and SDVOSB/VOSB verification, business development and sales, public speaking and presentation skills, small business taxes and QuickBooks, hiring and retaining quality employees, and much more!
Our staff and volunteer experts provide one-on-one counseling sessions on specific business issues including business plan review, growth and strategic planning, marketing, business development and sales, financial forecasting, funding options, bookkeeping and accounting, small business taxes, registration and certification (including review of 8a, WOSB and SDVOSB/VOSB certification applications), government contracting, review of legal documents, and intellectual property.
Finally, the VBOC offers regular opportunities for Veteran business owners (and their supporters) to gather and network. Such opportunities include the Annual Veterans in Business Conference, monthly peer group roundtables and Objective Rally Point (www.dc-orp.com).
The Veterans Business Outreach Center (VBOC) at Community Business Partnership is funded in part through a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
