Each year, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and Louisiana Small Business Development Center celebrate, connect, and empower service member (including National Guard and Reserve), veteran, and military spouse entrepreneurs and business owners –past, present, and future– during National Veterans Small Business Week (NVSBW). This year’s marks the fifth annual NVSBW of celebrating the #VetBiz Community.
The #VetBiz Community is made up of many different actors: the veteran, service member, or military spouse business owner; the university with an entrepreneurship program; the government agency powering free resources. This network of local offices, resources partners, and other organizations is the #VetBiz Community, proudly supporting veteran- and military-owned businesses with entrepreneurial training, mentorship, funding/capital, and other facets of business ownership.
