Veterans’ small businesses celebration underway

The U.S. Small Business Administration is celebrating veteran, service member, National Guard and Reserve members, and military spouse entrepreneurs during National Veterans Small Business Week, Oct. 30-Nov. 3.

Throughout the week, SBA district offices, resource partners, and local communities across the U.S. will host local and virtual events focused on access to capital, federal and commercial procurement opportunities and entrepreneurial training.

“Veteran-owned businesses are a critical pillar of the U.S. economy as they contribute more than $1.14 trillion to the nation’s annual total sales and receipts,” SBA Administrator Linda McMahon said.

“Through entrepreneurship and business ownership, these veterans continue their service by not only contributing to the economy but also by creating economic opportunities for other Americans,” she said.

At noon Thursday, SBA will host a Twitter chat, “Business Tips for Veteran Entrepreneurs.”
