National Veterans Small Business Week
October 31- November 4, the Small Business Administration (SBA) will celebrate National Veterans Small Business Week (NVSBW) 2016. The SBA works with resource partners to provide information for veteran entrepreneurs to start their own businesses.
The SBA encourages veteran business owners to share their small business success stories and asks local communities to demonstrate appreciation for veteran entrepreneurs and small business owners by joining the NVSBW conversation using the #MyVetBiz hashtag.
According to NACO data, Dorchester County has 3,027 veterans (2014). If you are a veteran or know a veteran that would like help starting their own business please contact the Dorchester County Economic Development office at 410-228-0155.
