Bring your Leadership Skills to the Business World.

Our veterans leave the service with unparalleled leadership skills and a knack for transforming any project into a success. So why not take those qualities and unleash them on the business world?

By starting your own veteran-owned business or franchise, you can take charge of your future and leverage military skills into a profitable veteran-owned business. Read on for a bevy of useful resources, information and and articles about franchising a business or launching your own unique product or service.

Are you a Vetrepreneur?

America needs you to innovate and solve problems. America needs your unique ideas and powerful leadership. America needs you, more than ever, to become a Vetrepreneur.

Our country has changed. Starting a business was once a major goal for veterans; in fact, 49% of all veterans leaving service shortly after WW2 started their own business. Now, less than 6% of veterans are becoming entrepreneurs. Why?

In fact, some of our most innovative technologies and companies were started by veterans, including Nike, FedEx and GoDaddy.
