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.

Veteran-Owned Businesses Nationwide

Franchising is a tried and true tradition of entrepreneurship. It all makes sense: your business will have instant name recognition, and you’ll benefit from the training and support that made the franchisor successful in the first place.
