National Veterans Small Business Week

Did you know that this week the Small Business Administration (SBA) is celebrating and educating small businesses, especially those owned and operated by our Veterans. SBA is celebrating, connecting, and empowering veterans, service members (including National Guard and Reserve members), and military spouse entrepreneurs and business owners – past, present, and future – this National Veterans Small Business Week (NVSBW) 2017 by highlighting the moments that matter in their journeys.

Your first business plan. Your first employee. The turning point when long, hard hours begin to pay off in steady streams of income. Each of these pivotal moments – no matter how big or small – is a moment that matters in the veteran entrepreneurship journey. These moments that matter are universal, and the 2.5 million veteran-owned businesses in the U.S. are experiencing them every day as they contribute approximately 1.4 trillion dollars to the nation’s total sales/receipts per year.
