Greetings and thanks for joining us. When many veterans exit the service, they’re looking for professional opportunities to support them in civilian life. For some former servicemembers, this means starting their own business. If you’re a veteran looking to make this career move, you might be wondering how to get started.

First, it’s important to decide what type of business you’d like to start. Once you’ve decided on your industry, take the time to consider whether you’d like to make online sales, become a franchise or create a green business plan.

When you figure out these details, in addition to your organization’s location, visit the Veteran Entrepreneur Portal on the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website. The site can help you organize a business plan to get the ball rolling.

Thanks for watching and check back soon for more.
