Helping Veterans & Their Families To Start And Grow Small Businesses
The Veteran Fast Launch is an organization whose mission is to assist any Veteran and Active Duty Member who is starting their own business by offering free or significantly discounted resources. With their partnership with the Wal-Mart Foundation they are able to provide military members with free or significantly discounted resources for starting businesses, such as computer software and business services (provided by major corporate partners), training in how to start and how to grow a successful/profitable business, and access to SCORE’s mentoring program.
To give back you can spread the word to any Active Service Member or Veteran starting a business about the Veteran Fast Launch program. Or visit their website for more details.
Veterans Across America, a 501(c)(3) organization in New York that helps returning Iraq and Afghanistan veterans find civilian jobs.
