Vets ‘Learn Big the Small Way’

Monday, November 7, 2016 (Issue #2)

.   .   .

One of the benefits of being a military veteran is taking the tools and ethics learned during training and applying them in the civilian workforce. Take, for example, a human resources specialist. The same can be said for business. A key component in business is leadership, and service members, from the very beginning, are transformed into leaders.

In honor of National Veterans Small Business Week (Oct. 31 – Nov. 4), the Department of Veterans Affairs is holding a small business workshop on Wednesday, Nov. 2 from 9 a.m. to noon in Rocky Hill, Conn.

Veterans aspiring to start a business or to expand the one they have are encouraged to come. The presenters will discuss tips and more from the likes of the U.S. Small Business Administration Connecticut District Office, New England Veterans Business Outreach Center, Connecticut Department of Labor, Department of Economic and Community Development, and other resource providers!

The event is free and snacks will be available.
