Veterans see tax break as way to make Minnesota competitive
Execs weigh in on being a veteran-owned business in Massachusetts
When the Boston Business Journal published its first-ever list of the largest veteran-owned businesses in Massachusetts last fall, our intent was to shine a light on a group of business owners who shared a commonality of prior military experience — and who are now making substantial contributions to the state’s economic engine in a variety of industries.
The pool of participants has grown substantially from that inaugural effort, and the top 25 participants on this year’s BBJ list of the 25-largest veteran-owned businesses in Massachusetts employ a cumulative total of more than 6,100 workers in Massachusetts.
UF program gives disabled vets tools for entrepreneurship
The transition from military to civilian life is difficult.
Following years of service, the future is often cloudy and uncertain for veterans.
Many return injured and without necessary skills to compete in today’s competitive business environment.
The Veterans Entrepreneurship Program offered by Florida’s Warrington College of Business is working to change that.
The program serves to teach disabled veterans, who own or are interested in owning a business, the necessary skills to succeed.
“The key is, we bring in the best, so the best instructors, the best entrepreneurs,” program director Michael Morris said.
