Join Us for 2019 Veteran Entrepreneur Freedom Summit II

The Largest NorCal Gathering of Veteran and Military Business Owners
About Us

Hosted by the American River College and supported by sponsors, Freedom Summit II is presented by Veteran Launch, the Rosie Network, and National Veterans Transition Services (REBOOT), in collaboration with CalVet, SBA and other Veteran Service Organizations.

Business Ownership

9% of U.S. businesses are owned by veterans. Approximately 25% of transitioning service members elect to start their own business, and 49% of military spouses are already self-employed. The 2.5 million veteran-owned businesses together generate $1.14 trillion in annual revenue, employing over 5 million, with a payroll of $195 billion.

Veteran Entrepreneurs Summit

The 2019 Freedom Summit presents an opportunity to network, meet business leaders and connect with subject matter experts at this groundbreaking event.  And, introducing two new features this year: connect with mentors through Focus and participate in the “Pitch- Session” where selected Vetrepreneurs have the chance to “pitch” their business to real angel investors.

Don’t Miss This Great Opportunity to Connect and Learn from the Best!
