Veteran-Owned Businesses Are an Economic Powerhouse

Veteran-Owned Businesses Are an Economic Powerhouse

You know the American Dream well. Come from nothing, work hard, change lives, and make some decent money along the way. That’s what the journey looks like for most of us. But for veterans, the American Dream often looks a little different. They fight for the safety of our country and make plenty of sacrifices along the way, then are left to establish careers after service. In return for their sacrifice, it’s important that we help veterans realize their own American Dream.

Do you know of all the cool businesses veterans have started?

There’s not much veterans CAN’T do after serving in the military. Some go on to become supervisors, software developers, electricians, and even cyber security analysts. Others open a franchise or start their own businesses that employ thousands of other veterans and military family members. The veteran business database highlights over 30,000 companies “owned by veterans, active duty, reservists, service disabled veterans and military spouses.”
