Businesses owned by veterans and by service-disabled veterans have been a research priority of the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy since the enactment of the Veterans Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development Act of 1999, Public Law 106-50. This report continues Advocacy’s ongoing veteran entrepreneurship research program and features data on veteran-owned businesses and their owners. Advocacy believes that good policy requires good information, and it is hoped that the information in this report will help policymakers in government and other stakeholders make more informed decisions.
