DID YOU KNOW: Veteran businesses succeed 250% greater than non-veterans? The Small Business Administration provides honorably discharged veteran entrepreneurs with special benefits they are automatically eligible for when starting or growing their small business. Veterans can gain startup or expansion capital to purchase and occupy commercial real estate property. The SBA provides opportunities for veterans contracting with the federal government. Take advantage of your veteran benefits available to you and your current spouse (or a widowed survivor) through the SBA.
