The IVMF has launched its 2nd annual National Survey of Military-Affiliated Entrepreneurs. We use this information to provide insights to those interested in understanding the military-affiliated entrepreneurship community, and to equip military-affiliated entrepreneurs for success. The results from this survey inform the public, private, and nonprofit practitioners (SBA, VOBS, Financial Institutions, PTACs, corporations interested in collaborating with veteran-owned businesses, etc.), policymakers, and the academic community about the unique characteristics and needs of military-affiliated entrepreneurs.
We have witnessed many changes within the past year, along with new challenges and emerging opportunities. To better serve those who have served, we need to better understand these new trends, needs, challenges, and opportunities, and therefore your input is essential. Whether or not you participated in the study last year, your input is needed and your voice will make a difference.
