In an effort to help connect consumers directly with veteran-owned businesses, American Power & Gas is developing an online marketplace, which is scheduled to launch Nov. 15.
The energy company has set out to help veteran-owned businesses and one of the ways they are trying to do that is by providing a place to link consumers, businesses and government entities with veteran-owned businesses.
“We are working to hire 120 veterans in our structure, and we wanted to do something more: we wanted to take it to the next level,” explained Andrea d’Agostini, vice president of marketing and public relations. “We want to create a market place for veterans companies to be able to present their business. We will then present it to our customers and our partner’s customers in order to create an expanding campaign.”
Corporate responsibility is a large part of the mission of American Power & Gas. As d’Agostini took over the marketing and public relations efforts for American Power & Gas, he wanted to find a way to use his skills to benefit veterans. The Veteran’s Hub is where the vision is coming to reality. American Power & Gas plans to enroll a wide variety of businesses owned by veterans and present the hub to their customers to assist in the growth of commerce.
“If a person or business is looking for goods and services, we want to make it as easy as possible for them to get those goods or services from a business that was founded by someone who was willing to risk it all for our freedom,” said d’Agositini.
d’Agostini hired Studio 98 to begin the development process, which is scheduled to be launched in mid-November. The development is ongoing, but so far everything is on schedule to have the Veteran’s Marketplace up and working before the busy holiday shopping begins on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
