For generations, American Veterans have played a crucial role in the stability and growth of the private sector economy. Armed with the unique knowledge and real-world experience that can only come from military service, some of our most iconic U.S. businesses and brands were started by veteran entrepreneurs, including Nike, Fedex, and Walmart.
But despite being such a historically strong entrepreneurial force in the U.S., veterans face significant obstacles in their quest to start a business, from knowledge gaps to financing challenges.
What resources and programs exist to help veterans start their businesses? What funding is available? How can we improve representation of veteran business owners for the future? How can an aspiring veteran business owner get started?
Join us on November 19th at 4:00pm EST to hear from our expert panelists and learn the answers to these questions and more.
