The Veterans Entrepreneur Alliance (VEA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to helping veterans’ transition from their military careers into their next mission as an entrepreneur.
Our organizational goals are to provide an avenue for veterans to
- Increase their education in business
- Expand their business
- Connect with fellow veterans and the community around them
The VEA provides resources and support to those who are seeking to re-integrate themselves into the community through a business platform. By doing this, veterans not only re-establish a sense of purpose, but are able to continue serving by supporting their community.
A WORD FROM OUR FOUNDER
“The Veteran Entrepreneur Alliance (VEA) is my passion. This organization was born from the belief that as veterans we lose two things when we leave service. The first is our sense of purpose. For many of us our identity is thoroughly entangled with our military service. When that time is over we find ourselves wondering who we will be without it. The second is our sense of connection and community. The people and structure we grew accustomed to are suddenly gone and it’s on us to find our way. Entrepreneurship helped me rediscover both of these things! I started the VEA as a way to provide access to the people and resources needed for my fellow veterans to rediscover this as well. The VEA is a strong organization because of the people who have come together to continue to support those who have served us. Welcome to the VEA, where support, resources, and community are always just a click away!”
