SBA: National Veterans Small Business Week Kicks Off November 2nd

SBA hosts annual events honoring and connecting America’s 2.5 million veteran-owned small businesses to local entrepreneurial resources

The U.S. Small Business Administration will celebrate veteran, service member and military spouse small business owners nationwide during National Veterans Small Business Week, Nov. 2-6, 2020.

“National Veterans Small Business Week is the perfect time to reflect on the accomplishments of our nation’s 2.5 million veteran-owned small businesses,” said SBA Administrator Jovita Carranza. “Now more than ever, it is our duty as an agency to empower these businesses as they adapt and pivot during this critical time. The SBA, in collaboration with our resource partner network, is proud to dedicate this week to honoring the veterans, service members and military spouses who continue to serve our great country as small business owners.”

This year’s National Veterans Small Business Week theme is “#VetBiz Resources in Your Local Community.” During the week, the SBA will highlight and connect veterans nationwide to local level entrepreneurial resources.

Each day, the SBA will focus on a different aspect of veteran business ownership. Topics will include transition assistance, entrepreneurial training, government contracting, disaster assistance and capital access.

SBA district offices, resource partners and local organizations will host virtual educational webinars, training workshops, networking opportunities, social media events, and more.

The SBA encourages veterans, service members, National Guard and Reserve members, and military spouses to join the online conversation and share their entrepreneurial stories and best practices, including the local resources they used to establish successful businesses, using the hashtag #VetBiz.
