Military to Main Street: Serving Veteran Entrepreneurship
Wednesday, June 8, 2022 | 10:00 AM
The Committee on Small Business will hold a hybrid hearing titled: “Military to Main Street: Serving Veteran Entrepreneurship.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10:00 A.M. on Wednesday, June 8, 2022 in Room 2360 of the Rayburn House Office Building. Participating members can also join remotely via Zoom.
Veterans often gain skills such as discipline, work ethic, and leadership throughout their military service that naturally translate to successful entrepreneurship and small business ownership. However, transitioning from military service to civilian life presents unique challenges for aspiring entrepreneurs. The purpose of the hearing will be to discuss the role of veteran entrepreneurs in the economy and how the Small Business Administration (SBA) supports their transition to civilian life.
