According to the National Women’s Business Council, there are nearly 100,000 businesses owned by female military veterans; all told, these businesses earn over $16 billion in annual receipts. To help women business owners who are veterans or spouses/domestic partners of veterans, Count Me In for Women’s Economic Independence and Capital One created the Women Veteran Entrepreneur Corps (WVEC). WVEC was created to help strengthen women entrepreneurs by providing the tools and support system they need to grow their businesses. In 2013, 24 women were selected to participate as veteran entrepreneurs in the Count Me In Business Accelerator Program. The program uses group coaching and training in business education to help increase profits within 18 to 36 months. Contact Count Me In to find out how you can participate in an upcoming program.
