National Veterans Small Business Week November 4-8, 2019 Mission #VetBiz Success SBA

Vet Biz Event in Tacoma on Nov. 7

The SBA celebrates National Veterans Small Business Week from Nov. 4-8, 2019.

Nearly one in 10 small businesses nationwide are veteran-owned. Collectively, these 2.5 million small businesses employ almost 6 million Americans and generate more than $1 trillion in annual receipts.

When considering the management and leadership skills veterans develop while on active and reserve duty, it’s no wonder we see so many choose the path of small business ownership.

The SBA, the Veterans Business Outreach Center (VBOC) and the University of Washington Tacoma's Veterans Incubator for Better Entrepreneurship (VIBE) are teaming up to connect you to government and other local business resources to start or grow your vet biz.

Join us for a panel discussion in Tacoma entitled "Opportunities and Obstacles for Veteran Businesses" featuring local successful veteran-owned businesses, followed directly by a small business resource fair.

Thursday, Nov. 7 | 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
