Operation Entrepreneur

See You in 2023!

Operation Entrepreneur is an opportunity to celebrate, connect, and empower service members, veterans, National Guard and Reserve members, and military spouses during National Veterans Small Business Week.

On November 7th-10th, 2022 we hosted a week of webcasts featuring presentations from leading experts of veteran-owned small businesses. The 4-day event featured opportunities for virtual & in-person networking and resource sharing and culminated in a watch party & networking event in Tacoma, WA.
