SBA Resources for Veterans

Wednesday, November 14, 2018 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Presented by Ed Ramos, Senior Area Manager, U.S. Small Business Administration

Attention to Orders! Many Americans mistakenly believe that Veterans Day is the day America sets aside to honor American military personnel who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained from combat. That’s not quite true. Memorial Day is the day set aside to honor America’s war dead. Veterans Day, on the other hand, honors ALL American veterans, both living and dead. In fact, Veterans Day is largely intended to thank LIVING veterans for dedicated and loyal service to their country.

This workshop covers the programs and services the Small Business Administration (SBA) offers to veterans and their spouses to help start and grow a business. Although the SBA is usually associated with loans, this overview will run through the SBA Loan Programs as well as our other programs and services including Counseling, Export Assistance, Government Contracting, Surety Bonds, and Disaster Assistance. Some of these services are for all businesses, while others are specifically for veterans. Free to attend, however, registration is required. The presentation will be conducted by SBA and PTAC.

You will learn about:

  • SBA Programs and Services including those targeting veterans:
    • Veteran’s Business Outreach Center (VBOC)
    • Veteran Advantage loan guarantee
    • Boots2Business Program
    • VWISE
  • PTAC will address general questions related to CVE certification
  • Other Veteran Business Development Initiatives in local area
