The Need To Support Veteran Entrepreneurship
AFTER WORLD WAR II, 49 PERCENT OF VETERANS WENT ON TO START AND OWN THEIR OWN BUSINESSES, ACCORDING TO THE INSTITUTE FOR VETERANS AND MILITARY FAMILIES AT SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY.
Today, 25 percent of active duty express an interest in starting and owning their own business, yet only 4.5 percent of post-9/11 veterans have started a business. How has this spirit of entrepreneurship been lost among veterans?
The challenge today for veterans is local integration and access to relevant networks for them to start and grow businesses. To learn more about the opportunity and need to support veteran entrepreneurship download our fact sheet here.
