WHO DOES THE VEA SERVE?

Let’s start with the obvious…..VETERANS!
Now that we have that out of the way. We also support veteran spouses! Holding down the home-front is a vital element of every military members time in service. We thank you for the support and sacrifices you have made for your loved one.

HOW DOES THE VEA SERVE VETERANS?

Based on what you probably already know, you can most likely tell that we help veterans start and grow businesses.
We do this through education, networking, and community building.
We also realize that some of our members just want to learn more about starting a business. They may take a look and realize it isn’t for them.
We are here for that too! At the end of the day, the VEA wants to help veterans explore all of the options available to them in order to smoothly transition into civilian life. If that ends up not being business related, we will get you to the right partner to take care of you!
