Empowering Veterans Through Entrepreneurship

1 Comment

We proudly read the headlines and articles of veterans protecting our country; however, the number of stories regarding the impact veterans have on the business world are few and far between.

With critical skills in leadership and management developed in active and reserve duty, it is no surprise that veteran firms represent roughly 1 in 10 of all U.S firms. According to recent statistics released by the U.S Census Bureau, in the private sector workforce alone, veterans are at least 45% more likely than those with no active duty military experience to be self-employed.

This is why the Institute for Entrepreneurial Excellence’s Small Business Development Center, partnered with the Office of Veterans Services, is proud to offer a no-cost educational series titled “Operation Business Bravo” that provides the tools and training veterans and their families need to succeed in starting their small business.

    Veterans deserve the choice to put those benefits to alternative, productive uses, such as towards starting their own business. The Small Business Administration has reported that veterans are 45 percent more likely to own their businesses than non-veterans.
