Data from Certified Military Spouse Owned Enterprises
Early Trend Report, April 2021
The data found in this Early Trend Report is derived from the first 25 Military Spouse Owned Enterprises who were certified by the U.S. Military Spouse Chamber of Commerce.

We proudly invite you to share the information found in this report, but implore that you share responsibly, citing and hyperlinking to this document so the data contained in the Early Trend Report is not misinterpreted to represent all military spouse owned businesses rather than the sample size for which the report is intended.

Why Support Military Spouses?
Lost Income Compounds Over Time
Military spouses faced a staggering 24% unemployment rate prior to the global pandemic. When military spouses are employed, they earn on average $12,000 less per year than their civilian counterparts despite having higher levels of college education. Your gift will remove a financial barrier to military spouses who want to pursue entrepreneurship as a sustainable career path.
