Laura Johnson manages the Small Business Entrepreneurship Outreach Program at Digital.com. I wanted to connect with you and let you know about our recently published guide specifically for US Veterans who are in the process of starting or currently own a small business.
Recent data points to 1 out 20 business owners being veterans, which speaks to the fact that their unique experience and perspective gives them the ideal skill set needed to successfully take on the challenges of entrepreneurship. Veterans are often able to demonstrate an inspiring style of leadership that is characterized by selflessness, balanced with the discipline to strive for continued growth and progress, and perfectly equipped to remain effective when facing the greatest of setbacks. Most of all, though every entrepreneur will have a different journey, sacrifice will undoubtedly be a part of the success story.
We want to come alongside and help veterans turn their business aspirations into successful endeavors by making sure they are aware of the unique competitive advantages available to them such as exclusive grants, training resources, and mentoring.
