More than 65,000 businesses in Wisconsin are owned by military veterans. Don’t miss “Morning Formation” to learn what veteran entrepreneurs and business owners need to know about starting and growing their business.


Employers recognize the value veterans bring to their workplace, and are actively seeking veteran talent to fill critical needs in their workforce. “Veterans in the Workforce” provides employers with the knowledge they need to develop veteran hiring initiatives, train their staff to interview and assess veteran applicants, and establish procedures and programs to retain their best veteran employees.


Supporting veteran resource groups builds a more veteran-friendly business community and helping employers attract and retain the best possible talent. “The Corporate Veterans Roundtable” supports organizations as they create, grow, and sustain their corporate veteran resource programs through sharing best practices, guidance and mentorship, and collaborative approaches to supporting veterans in southeastern Wisconsin.
