Since 1985, BVC has helped many individuals, primarily through our vast volunteer network, (we are still a 100% volunteer organization), start and grow businesses. This happened because most of our members operate companies they started themselves and, via monthly get acquainted meetings, helped new members launch or build their businesses. Some of the impetus for this emanated from one of BVC’s original founders who engineered, patented and marketed one of the most successful and widely heralded families of products of the 20th century… ‘MEDICALL’ and ‘MICROLERT’… (you may remember the television commercial “Help, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up”).
In 2009 BVC held a BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT SEMINAR in San Diego, to help start new ventures and to raise funds for its vital cause. There would be no fees, like the $5,000 to $20,000 being charged by for-profit entities for similar services… only nominal tax-deductible donations. (Suggested donations of $100 to $1,000 are made at your discretion). It exceeded our expectations.
Among our members, we have several MBA’s, CPA’s, JD’s and paralegals, publicists, IT specialists, event planners, web designers, and more. They have agreed to provide their services, if needed, at discounted levels and in some instances… free.
