In partnership with The Veterans Exchange and the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, SBA is proud to present “The Unique Value of Veterans to Small Businesses – Small Business Luncheon” featuring Robert “Bo” Steiner, U.S. Small Business Illinois District Director & Navy Veteran, as the keynote speaker. Veterans don’t inherently think of seeking jobs with small businesses after the military. However 28 million U.S. Small businesses employ over 50% of the working population, create over 65% of new jobs in our marketplace, and are unaware of the talent pipeline represented by our military veterans. This networking luncheon will provide the reasons small businesses are ideal for veterans as well as the reasons veterans are ideal for small businesses. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn how to put this unique and diverse talent pool of veterans to work in the small business community where their impact can be felt on a daily basis. All small business owners and veterans interested in taking advantage of this opportunity should register for our free luncheon event as directed.
