This week, November 2nd- 7th, is recognized for the second year as National Veterans Small Business Week. It is conducted by the U.S. Small Business Administration, where they host events across the country, to celebrate and support current and future veteran owned businesses.
Small businesses are crucial to our nation’s economy. In the US, there are more than 28 million small business. Drive and leadership are skills necessary to start and grow a small business so it is not a shock that veterans are an essential part of America’s small business landscape. Almost one out of every 10 U.S. small businesses are veteran owned and generate more than $1.1 trillion in earnings each year, employing nearly 6 million workers.
More than 1 million active service men and women will transition back into civilian life in the coming months and years. Veteran business owners continue to serve our nation by contributing, producing and sustaining economic opportunities for the nation.
Sierra w/o Wires is proud to be a Veteran Owned Business, supporting all active and veteran servicemen serving local and abroad.
