Veteran Small Business Resources

November 04, 2016

These national organizations can help veterans make the leap to entrepreneurship.

It’s no secret that starting a business can be a roller coaster ride. For veterans, active military or even the spouse of someone in the military, entrepreneurship presents a distinct set of opportunities and challenges. Numerous programs abound to help our service men and women make the transition from military life to the business world. Following are a handful of national organizations that can help you make the leap.
