SBA’s Veteran Pledge Initiative

Are you a veteran transitioning from active service and want to become an entrepreneur? Or perhaps you’ve been out of the service for some time and want to start a new small business or expand an existing one?

At the end of May, the SBA launched a new program with the call to arms above, known as the SBA Veteran Pledge Initiative.  The pledge itself has been made by top national regional and community lenders to collectively increase their lending activity to veterans by five percent per year for the next five years

The SBA’s veteran-based programs are intended to provide tools to help veterans start businesses, facilitate the local economy where they will operate in addition to creating jobs for veterans and their communities.

Those interested in the program are encouraged to call one of SBA’s 68 local district offices, or one of its 15 Veterans Business Outreach Centers nationwide.
