Profile of Veteran Business Owners: More Young Veterans Appear To Be Starting Businesses

An Issue Brief published by the Office of Advocacy shows the changing makeup of America’s veteran business owners.

Veteran business owner demographics and the economic and business environment are changing dramatically and rapidly. There is some evidence that the proportion of younger veteran business owners (under age 35) increased from 2008 to 2012, as did the share of veteran women business owners. (The share of women business owners appears to have increased among both veterans and non-veterans, but at a much greater rate for female veterans.)
