Take the next step to starting a business after your Military service

IS SMALL BUSINESS OWNERSHIP FOR YOU? 

Entrepreneurship and small business ownership is a key opportunity for transitioning service members and veterans as they transition to civilian life. Returning veterans are natural entrepreneurs, possessing the skills, experience and leadership to start businesses and create jobs.  According to the most recent U.S. Census Data, veteran-owned firms represent 9 percent of all U.S. firms.  These 2.45 million veteran-owned businesses employed 5.793 million individuals. If you have a passion and the drive to start a business, this intensive training workshop is a perfect fit for you!
