FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LEADING VETERANS GROUP TO LAUNCH A COMPREHENSIVE VETERAN RESOURCE GUIDE
VEDI, Inc will generate publication to inform, engage and empower the veteran community
NEW YORK, NY (February 21, 2017) – VEDI, INC. is launching a campaign to develop a comprehensive resource and support guide that will provide much needed information and collaboration tools to effectively reach the estimated and untapped multi-trillion dollar veteran community. With a focus on entrepreneurial development and economic empowerment, VEDI, Inc will partner with public and private sector entities to generate the research data and support material to provide a much needed road map for veterans to better access business development, community engagement and support services to provide the long term sustainability that is lacking within the veteran community. In addition, major corporations, government agencies and educational institutions will be able to connect with grass roots and emerging veteran service organizations to bridge the many gaps that exist causing the myriad of problems that our returning heroes face.
“Our military are the best trained and highly disciplined while on active duty, but upon return to the home front, their civilian lives are complete opposites with high unemployment, suicides, business failures and substance abuse,” stated Meta J. Mereday, Founder, VEDI, Inc. This guide will set a new dynamic in the veteran community with a focus on the “Total Veteran” – and not media-hyped stereotypes. This guide will provide vital resource information, community service models, best practices for business development, career and family enhancement tips, educational tips with tools, post-deployment success strategies, legal – financial information and veteran statistics and trends.
“Too often, veterans are returning home ill-equipped to make the transition, lacking the necessary tools and information and it has caused too many to fall victim to negative lifestyles that lead to abuses,” stated Stephen Bailey, Veteran and Managing Consultant, Top Flight, LLC., a veteran owned development and logistic company working with VEDI to develop the guide format. “We look forward to partnering with VEDI to develop this guide and to build the platform around it to maximize veteran empowerment and to build up the veteran community. VEDI continues to lead the way in innovative models to change the dynamic in a positive way for our returning veterans.”
VEDI, Inc. is seeking program partners to assist with the data research and material compilation for the guide book. Promotional opportunities will be available for contributors to market their services that relate to veteran business development and veteran community empowerment. The launch issue will be a limited release, with Long Island as the pilot market as it is home to the largest veteran population in the Northeast Corridor with an extensive corporate base, prestigious colleges and universities and a representative population.
Veterans Entrepreneurial Development Initiatives (VEDI) Inc. is a 501(c)(3) New York State not for profit organization that was established to collaborate with various organizations to create an effective national model to grow veteran businesses, increase veteran employment and ignite veteran community empowerment. VEDI works with diverse constituencies to develop programs to increase veteran entrepreneurial and employment outreach and other services to improve infrastructure and long-term sustainability for veterans, their businesses and families.
