Veteran Business Award Finalists Announced at Governor McAuliffe’s Visit

February Veteran Small Business Award Finalists

We’re kicking off the third month of the Veteran Small Business Award program with a bang. Today, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe visited the StreetShares office to announce his new initiative for the Virginia Values Veterans (V3) Program.

The V3 Program helps companies seeking to hire veterans understand, design and implement best practices in recruiting, hiring and retaining veterans. Governor McAuliffe is a huge supporter of veteran education, employment and entrepreneurship in Virginia. He stated a new goal to reach 25,000 veteran jobs in Virginia before he leaves office.

The Veteran Small Business Award is one program the StreetShares Foundation has in place to encourage and support veteran entrepreneurship. The February finalists for the Veteran Small Business Award come from across the country, own companies impacting the military and veterans community and represent all branches of the military.

Congratulations to the February Award Finalists!
