VETERAN MENTORING2023-04-14T09:41:54-05:00

Veteran Business Project’s staff and Business Mentor provide hands-on guidance and mentoring to Military, Veterans, and Spouse small business owneroperators including, but not limited to, entrepreneurship training, business opportunity referrals and more. This ongoing commitment to our military veterans underlies the essence of what the Veteran Business Project is all about – making a positive contribution in the lives of our veterans – by Getting Veterans into Business.


We strongly encourage all who care about our veterans to get actively involved in helping them lead productive lives. In many cases, it is as simple as finding and befriending one veteran. It is as simple as taking a sincere interest in that veteran and any day-to-day challenge she/he may be facing. A good message on why this is so very important is set forth in this video message:
