Chamber launches programs to honor, assist veterans in business
The Jenks Chamber of Commerce is launching a new program to honor and support veterans who own and work at Jenks businesses.
“Saluting Veterans in Business” will include a listing of veteran owned businesses as well as veterans employed at companies located in the Jenks community. The Chamber will also create a list of resources for veterans looking to start or grow a business.
“According to the SBA, veterans are 45% more likely to be self-employed than non-veterans,” said Zach Thomas, the Chamber’s director of economic development. “Additionally, veteran-owned businesses employ 5.8 million people across the country. In Oklahoma, more than 36,000 firms are veteran-owned.”
