A partnership of the Catalyst, Military Veterans, and the business community to provide support, promote capabilities, and generate opportunities for networking and business growth.
The mission of the Veteran’s Accelerator is to provide supportive programs to empower Veterans to become self-sufficient through entrepreneurship. The Veteran’s Accelerator will be a one-stop resource for veterans to start or grow a business, share resources, and market their capabilities to large prime contractors and government agencies.
Services include customized coaching and training for Veterans who are interested in starting a business or growing an existing one. Services also include a focus on SDVOSBs, a federal program designed to enable service-disabled veterans to gain access to economic opportunity by leveraging the federal procurement system and expanding participation of procurement-ready small businesses.
Veterans who are successful business owners have generously offered their support in helping other Veterans get started and to grow. Our services are available to all U.S. Military Veterans, Service-Disabled Veterans, Reservists, National Guard Members, Active Duty business owners, and Military Spouses and families.
The Veteran’s Accelerator is a membership consortium of VOSBs and SDVOSBs organized by The Catalyst. A Steering Committee, comprised of veterans and business leaders, will provide guidance and advice on matters of interest to its members.
The Veteran's Accelerator will hold quarterly programs for the Veteran Community to assist them in being successful in the Business world.
