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?
