Monday, November 5th, 2018

The U.S. Small Business Administration will celebrate the accomplishments of veteran, service member and military spouse small business owners nationwide during National Veterans Small Business Week, Nov. 5-9.
“National Veterans Small Business Week is another opportunity for us not only to highlight the success of our nation’s 2.5 million veteran-owned businesses, but also to recognize the areas where there is still work to be done,” SBA Administrator Linda McMahon said. “Entrepreneurship is not a solo mission. I’m proud to be a part of a network that serves the needs of our veteran and military business owners.”
The SBA Georgia District Office, local resource partners will be hosting an event at Kennesaw State University on Nov. 5. This year’s theme, Our #VetBiz Community, shines a spotlight on various aspects of the veteran business community, ranging from aspiring to current veteran and military business owners, as well as the organizations that provide entrepreneurial training.
The SBA encourages veterans, service members, National Guard and Reserve members, and military spouses to attend the local event or, if you can’t make it, join the online conversation and share what their veteran business communities look like by using the hashtag #VetBiz.
