Speaker: Natalie C. Hall, Economic Development Specialist/Veterans Representative, N.FL., U.S. Small Business Administration
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is set to host its 10th annual National Veterans Small Business Week (NVSBW) from Oct. 30 to Nov. 3, 2023. Designed to shine a spotlight on the nation’s nearly two million Veteran-owned small enterprises, the week-long initiative is expected to resonate deeply with the small business community, reflecting the profound impact that veteran entrepreneurs have had on America’s economic landscape.
For small business owners who may have served in the military or are connected to the community, this event promises to be a boon. Offering both in-person and virtual platforms, the NVSBW will engage participants in conversations about the multifaceted entrepreneurial journey tailored specifically to veterans and military spouses.
