Event description

Description

Nearly one in 10 small businesses nationwide are veteran-owned. Collectively, these 2.5 million small businesses employ almost 6 million Americans and generate more than $1 trillion in annual receipts.

When considering the management and leadership skills veterans develop while on active and reserve duty, it’s no wonder we see so many choose the path of small business ownership.

The SBA and its partner the Veterans Business Outreach Center (VBOC) want to help you connect with government resources to start or grow your vet biz.

Please note the following event is available in-person only:
