Our Mission

This first-of-its-kind national initiative supports the success of veteran, service member, and military spouse-owned businesses by connecting them with entrepreneurial education and training, small business resources and solutions, and commerce and supplier opportunities.

The Coalition advocates for and supports businesses operated by the greater military and veteran community, including both business-to-business and business-to-consumer models.

Why the Coalition?

Frank Bisignano, Chairman and CEO of First Data, introduces the Coalition for Veteran Owned Business.

Of the more than 27 million Small Businesses in the U.S., more than 2.5 million (9 percent) are veteran owned (SBA)

Veteran businesses employ more than 5.8 million people in the U.S. (SBA)

Veteran owned businesses generate more than $1.2 trillion in sales per year (SBA)

Join a national platform to support military spouse and veteran-owned businesses, entrepreneurs, and suppliers.
