At Main Street Launch, we understand how critical veteran-owned businesses are in the small business community. The entrepreneurial spirit that some veterans exhibit and the knowledge and skills that they have gathered during their military service brings a different perspective to owning a business.
Additional things that Main Street is celebrating this Veteran’s Day:
- 9% of all U.S. firms are veteran-owned
- Veterans create jobs and are 30% more likely to hire fellow veterans
- California has 250,000 veteran-owned businesses which is 9.8% of all veteran-owned businesses nationally
- Veterans are 45% more likely than those without military experience to be self-employed
Thank you to all of the veterans who are serving and have served our country, and thank you to all of the veteran business owners who are now serving their communities.
