Veteran Business Project was recently introduced to the leaders of the various SBA Veterans Business Outreach Centers (VBOCS) nationwide, 22 organizations in all. The VBOC program is designed to provide entrepreneurial development to transitioning service members, and military spouses interested in starting or growing a small business. VBP will be a readily-available asset to assist the various VBOC organizations in delivering their important entrepreneurship service mission. #military #smallbusiness #business #development #entrepreneurship #veterans
From WWll to now...Getting veterans into business for themselves is a challenge. In the 9 years following WW II, 49.7% of America’s veterans went into business for themselves. Post 9/11, it’s in the range of 5-6%. The predominant reason for this dramatic decline is lack of access to capital. Veteran Business Project is making a significant difference for the better with our unique “vharmony” business matchmaking strategy. We match veterans/milspouses seeking to become small business owners with viable small business owners looking to sell. Many baby-boomer small business owners are looking to transition into full retirement. There will be a lot of viable business ownership opportunities available on the backside of this COVID challenge. Check us out...stay tuned.
