October 4-6, 2023  Your battlefield may have been in a distant or foreign land.  Starting and growing a business may feel just as distant and foreign.  But, you can live the American dream of business ownership.

BBBC22 empowered more than 200 conference attendees from 15 different states with business development education, training, and networking opportunities.

Now in its 5th year, Business Beyond the Battlefield Conference 2023 is a 3-Day business-to-business educational conference, networking event, and small business showcase for military connected entrepreneurs, collaborative resource partners, military influencers, and decision-makers dedicated to growing the US economy by empowering the military connected entrepreneur community. 

This conference will keep you engaged throughout three days of dynamic business development networking, inspirational speakers, panel discussions, subject matter expert breakout sessions and expos to get you in front of the resources that your small business needs.
