Each award has its own set of standards and criteria that are reviewed to ensure we have an appropriate candidate for the award. The person or company is recognized for merit or achievements well above normal expectations.
The NVBDC awards are announced at the annual NVBDC National Business Matchmaking Conference. Our 5th annual conference was held this year on November 5-6 in a virtual environment due to the pandemic. With over 500 Veterans and Corporations' overwhelming attendance, it was the perfect setting to acknowledge the award recipients.

2020 Veteran Business of the Year Award Recipient: BioArmor, LLC, Sal Toscano, CEO
“In times like these, small businesses typically have a more difficult time raising revenue.
However, it is in times like these, that veteran owned businesses prepare and step-up to the challenge, like we have in tough times in our military life, when you double down to get the task at hand done. It is how we were trained, and what we did for our country, and what makes us who we are today.
That said, as a NVBDC Certified SD/VOB, I truly appreciate the recognition for this award. I will share this notification of the award, which will be included as part of my client communication, and marketing programs going forward.” Said, Sal Toscano, CEO/Member Manager, BioArmor LLC.
