We are an SDVOSB. What does this mean for you?
Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business
LED Waves is a New York State Certified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business
(Division of Service-Disabled Veterans’ Business Development (DSDVBD) Control Number: 161301)
You look at your procurement history for the year and you notice you are short on the following Small Business categories: HUBZone (this means a business in an area that used to be heavily industrial and is now underutilized and crumbling), Veteran-Owned, Service-Disabled Veteran Owned (a separate category). If you do business with LED Waves, you could use that purchase on all three categories. If you don't use your full budget, it will be cut by Congress next year. A sales rep from LED Waves calls up and explains the many benefits of switching to LED bulbs. You can also get stimulus money that comes from outside your budget to offset the higher purchase price. What would you do?
Thus, our designation as a SDVOB gives us a sustainable competitive advantage with the largest consumer of goods on the planet: the US Government - sustainable because GE, Philips, Sylvania cannot follow us there even if they can beat us on cost.
