Veterans Small Business Week is an SBA initiative to reach out to veteran entrepreneurs and small business owners. “The SBA is acutely focused on making sure our nation’s veterans have the tools and capital they need to start or grow a business,” says Norris Lozano, CEO of BusinessUS, “We fully support these efforts to assist in the transition from military to civilian life, including small business lending.”
According to the U.S. Census, nearly one in 10 small businesses is veteran-owned. And, these 2.4 million veteran-owned small businesses employ almost 6,000,000 people and generate more than $1,000,000,000,000 ($1 Trillion) in receipts!
Veterans Small Business Week will be held from November 4 to 11.
