5th Annual National Veterans Small Business Week

November 5-9, 2018 marks the fifth annual National Veterans Small Business Week. NVSBW was created to honor Veteran entrepreneurs who continue to serve our country by starting businesses, creating jobs and fueling economic growth.

U.S. Veterans are an integral part of our business landscape. Veterans own and operate nearly one-tenth of the 27 million small businesses in the United States critical to our nation's economy.
