Springfield, VA September 14, 2017 – Perfecta recently completed the Veteran Institute Procurement (VIP) GROW Program, a comprehensive training and certification program that helps veteran-owned businesses strengthen their ability to win government contracts and do business with both military and civilian agencies they once served in uniform.
On June 22, 2017, Perfecta was one of 49 businesses from 15 states and the District of Columbia to graduate from the Veteran Institute for Procurement (VIP) GROW Program. “Perfecta was honored to take part in the VIP GROW Program. The knowledge gained will be invaluable to Perfecta’s procurement development and knowledge base within the Federal contracting industry.” Said George Zoulias, Founder and CEO of Perfecta. “This program has given us the tools, resources and connections that will help take Perfecta to the next level.”
The first program of its kind in the nation, VIP GROW is conducted by professional subject-matter specialists in the essentials necessary to win government contracts: law, accounting, insurance, human resources, marketing and proposals. It also provides participants with access to Federal and prime contracting executives along with a national network of veteran-owned small businesses that they can team with on opportunities.
"We are honored to give back to the men and women who served our country by providing them with the tools necessary to succeed as government contractors." said Barbara Ashe, President of the Montgomery County Chamber Community Foundation. “We hope this training fosters their success as businesses and employers.”
About VIP GROW
Since its launch in 2009, VIP GROW has helped 727 service-disabled and veteran-owned small businesses grow.

More than 81% of surveyed graduates credited VIP GROW for equipping them to make recent business decisions and avoid unseen pitfalls.
