Military spouse business owners are starting out in 2021 with a bang, check out the feature story by Susan Malandrino of Ameriforce Media in Military Families Magazine highlighting the year to come for milspouse entrepreneurs.
Why support military spouse enterprise?
Move the Needle
Since 2012 military spouse unemployment remains statistically unchanged. It’s time to look at the entire picture, including the 48% of all military spouses who turn to self employment and business ownership rather than careers in the traditonal workforce. Military spouses are 45% more likely to launch and grow a small business, and are 4x more likely to succeed than their civilian counterparts.
Spouses Hire Spouses
Military spouse business owners hire other military spouses. “Veteran and military spouse business owners are 10x more likely to hire fellow veterans and spouses. By empowering these individuals with meaningful training and mentorship, we are impacting their families, their communities, and our nation’s economy.” Stephanie Brown, The Rosie Network
Milspouse Owned Enterprise
In an unprecedented campaign to drive enterprise to military spouse owned business, you can support officially vetted Military Spouse Owned Enterprise Certification (MSEC) through the first of its kind certification process. Enable B2B opportunity for military spouses allowing them to get a seat at the table for the first time in history!
Military Quality of Life
A spouse with professional fulfillment is an instrumental part of a healthy military family. Nearly 40% of service members have considered leaving the military to support their spouse’s career, this number increases to 48% when the spouse holds a graduate or professional degree. By shopping military spouse owned business as consumers, and engaging in B2B enterprise, you directly impact military retention, and national security.
