U.S. Small Business Administration Veterans’ Small Business Week Event


Vets Corps brings together the SBA and AUSA to host a Veterans Small Business Conference. Vets Corps founder and S.O.Tech President Jim Cragg saw an opportunity to give back to the Veteran community in organizing this event. Most of these events are bland discussions about how to seek funding and register for set asides. So I set out to bring the Association of the US Army to bring a military-speak aspect to the presentation of good information. Brigadier General (ret) Jim Combs will be the keynote speaker and panel speakers will cover everything from mentoring for small business start-ups to how Veteran businesses should engage aerospace and defense industry opportunities. Veterans are twice as likely as their civilian counterparts to start a small business. Vets Corps believes that we need to support our servicemen and women who wish to continue their tradition of leading by becoming business leaders.

The Veterans Small Business Conference will be held November 2 at the Bob Hope Patriotic Hall in Los Angeles, California. All Veterans are welcome to this free event, whether you are thinking about starting a business or looking to expand your existing business.
