Learn About the VeteranCrowd Network
Veteran-led businesses drive the American economy.
In the spring of 2008, I realized the business we had spent years building was facing an existential crisis – everything was going to dry up. I was distraught, scared, frustrated.
So I spent a Saturday morning listing every customer I had served for the previous 14 years, hoping I would find something in that list to help define our path forward. It jumped off the page – every time we worked with a company with military veterans in the management team, we had a successful outcome.
Why not do more of that?
There are more than 2.5 million veteran-owned and led businesses in the United States, generating $1.14 trillion in revenues. Of these, almost 420,000 businesses have scaled, and employ almost 5 million Americans.
Given a choice, 70% of Americans would prefer to do business with a veteran-led company – the problem is veteran led businesses are hard to find.
