HARLINGEN – The U.S. Small Business Administration kicks off National Veterans Small Business Week (NVSBW), Monday, November 2nd, highlighting our nation’s 2.5 million veteran-owned small businesses.

This year’s theme, “#VetBiz Resources in Your Local Community,” elevates the no cost entrepreneurial resources that veteran and military entrepreneurs can access right in their neighborhoods. From seeking business mentoring via a local SCORE chapter to training and one-on-one counseling by a Small Business Development Center or even visiting with a business advisor from one of the 22 Veteran Business Outreach Centers (VBOC), the SBA educates, empowers and inspires motivated “Vetrepreneurs.”

“As a veteran, the celebration of National Veterans Small Business Week is very dear to me,” Angela R. Burton, district director, SBA’s Lower Rio Grande Valley District Office, said. “It showcases the resilience, determination, and grit veterans acquire from military service, making them outstanding business owners, community leaders, and job creators.”

The Lower Rio Grande Valley District has planned several virtual events for NVSBW to include mission-essential resources for small businesses, access to capital webinars, and Boots to Business Reboot training. In line with daily themes, veterans, active military, reservists, and military spouses may register for events every day; for more details, go to the district’s website https://www.sba.gov/offices/district/tx/harlingen?123.

“Entrepreneurship is not a solo mission. I’m proud to be a part of an agency and network that serves the needs of our veteran and military business owners,” Burton stated.
