Veteran-Owned Businesses: We Salute You

Get Matched to a Lender

Connect2Capital levels the playing field for small business owners seeking capital from a responsible lender. We’ll help match you today to find the funds you need for your business.

As a veteran entrepreneur, you know the value of hard work and dedication. Yet, you may face significant obstacles to receiving small business financing. Despite veteran businesses representing nearly 10 percent of all small businesses in the U.S., between 2010 and 2017, SBA loans to non-veteran owned businesses increased 82 percent compared to 48 percent for veteran-owned businesses.

Clearly, there is a significant opportunity gap for veteran-owned businesses; along with transitioning to civilian life, you may face unique challenges in starting and growing businesses. However, you also have acquired unique experiences during service – including leadership, teamwork, and management – that aid with entrepreneurship.

The process of finding and securing traditional small business loans can be challenging. Connect2Capital can help fulfill business financing needs when traditional lenders aren’t an option.

As you look for business growth opportunities like hiring new employees and increasing revenue, it’s important to work with a lender as committed to your goals as you are.
