Supporting and Developing a Veteran Owned Business in Fort Worth

Support Veterans Owned Businesses

Did you know that Veterans are 45% more likely to be self-employed than nonveterans, according to the Small Businesses Administration (Entrepreneur.com)?

In fact, nationwide, veterans own over 2 million businesses, generating a trillion dollars in revenue and employing millions of people. This comes as no surprise to us, since veterans are some of the hardest working, confident, self motivated, determined, and teamwork oriented folks we know!

The Department of Veterans Affairs now allows federal education benefits as the Post 9/11 G.I. Bill to be applied toward courses in Entrepreneurship.  The college or university is required to be partnered with a Small Development Business Center.  In Tarrant County, there are Entrepreneurship courses through Tarrant County College.   In addition, there is a list of events in the region that provide training for owning your business.

Fort Worth is working hard to make sure that the local business environment remains friendly and supportive to veterans owned businesses. Here’s an easy way to connect with a veteran business owner in your city:
