Every May, we observe National Military Appreciation Month to recognize the achievements and sacrifices of current and former servicemembers.
Part of showing support for our armed forces means ensuring veterans have the resources to succeed after they leave the military. Veterans are a particularly motivated group of entrepreneurs, and JPMorgan Chase has several programs and efforts in place to get them the resources, capital and opportunities they need. These include:
- The Office of Military and Veterans Affairs, which celebrated its 10-year anniversary in 2021
- The Veteran Jobs Mission
- Our CEOcircle partnership with Bunker Labs
- Being a founding partner of the Institute for Veterans and Military Families and Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans initiative at Syracuse University
- Being a founding partner of the National Veteran-Owned Business Association
Below, veteran business owners can find additional content meant to educate, inspire and empower them.
