New to Business?
Experienced Veteran Business Owner?
Veterans' Network Mentorship program participants will be matched directly with a mentor or mentee to discuss business operations, challenges, goals and the unique challenges you face as a Veteran in business.
We know you have the grit it takes to run a small business. We also know how complicated it can be. Become part of the Mentorship Program and we will match you with an experienced Veteran who’s been running her or his own business for years. They can give you the advice, insight and support to get you over the next hurdle.
The saying, “If you want something done, ask a busy person” had you in mind. We know you’re busy, but we also know you’re the kind of person who believes in service and giving back, so become a Mentor with NSBA’s Veterans’ Network Mentorship Program today! You can share your insight, best practices and how to avoid the biggest snafus as a business owner.
