The Entrepreneurial Way: Veterans Lead in Business & Beyond
June 23, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am
As of 2018, there are nearly 18 million Veterans in the United States, yet American military Veterans are nearly twice as likely to be self-employed compared to non-Veterans and are majority owners in nine percent of all businesses nationwide.
Join us on June 23rd for a conversation with leaders from the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies, Bunker Labs, and other experts in the field to discuss the state of Veteran entrepreneurship and the potential impact on healthcare and beyond.
We’ll also share details about the Veterans Lead QuickFire Challenge series which is offering grant funding and mentorship opportunities for Veteran entrepreneurs in health care.
