Celebrate National Veterans Small Business Week with the

SBA Graphic for National Veterans Small Business Week 2022.

National Veterans Small Business Week (NVSBW) 2022 will take place on October 31-November 4. This year, we will focus on celebrating the strength and resilience of the Veteran and military small business community as you continue to march beyond the events of the pandemic and use what you’ve learned over the past few years to propel your businesses forward. With the SBA and its partners, we will work to connect your small business to resources that will help you start, grow, or expand your businesses.
