The week of October 31st is 2016 National Veterans Small Business Week. Here at Pathway Lending and Pathway WBC, we’re honored to partner with the SBA’s Office of Veteran’s Business Development (OVBD) to support veterans, active duty service members, Reserve and Guard members and military spouses through entrepreneurial education and counseling, access to capital, and so much more.
In fact, 11% of our clients in 2015 were veterans. We are committed to supporting military service members through all of our regular small business classes in addition to veteran-specific course like REBOOT: Boots to Business. While we won’t offer this class again until 2017, the SBA currently offers countless resources and will host several national webinars this week to celebrate veterans in business. Here is a link to great resources from SBA for Veterans Small Business Week.
Looking for more resources? Several of our clients have completed Veteran Women Igniting the Spirit of Entrepreneurship (V-WISE) and we work with female veterans to help them gain access to this program.
Interested in learning more about how Pathway WBC can help you get started on the path to entrepreneurship? Contact us today and we can help you determine where to start. Thank you to all veteran and active members of all branches of the military, Reserve and Guard, and of course their families. Happy National Veterans Small Business Week everyone!
