What is the Australian Veteran Owned Business Professional Association?


The Australian Veteran Owned Business: conceptualised, founded, and operated by veterans, for veterans.

Upon returning to Australia after his third rotation to Afghanistan, the Founder and CEO of the Australian Veteran Owned Business, Mitchell, embarked on a path that so many veterans had done so before him and he started his own business. He began searching for professional associations to align his business with. What he soon realised was that, despite spending over a decade in service of Australia and its people, there were none that existed which specifically recognised his military service and brought together business owners who share the same privileged background. 

The Australian Veteran Owned Business was established as a third party certifier in order to fill this gap. Third party certification is a process whereby an independent assessment declares that specified requirements pertaining to a product, person, process or management system have been met. In Australia, there are third party certifications for a wide range of products and services, but so far, nothing has existed which recognises veteran owned and operated businesses – until now.
