Skills After Service Online Community for Veteran Business owners and their families

In the sprawling tapestry of today’s digital age, where connections are made with the click of a button, the power of community has never been more potent, especially for those who have served. Understanding this, DLM’s veteran-focused division has taken a significant step forward. We have established an online community for veterans and their families who are navigating the entrepreneurial world. This initiative, born from a strategic partnership with – the world’s largest networking site for small business owners – brings to life the Skills After Service Community Group.

This group is not merely a network; it’s a vibrant ecosystem designed to foster connections, collaboration, and mutual growth among entrepreneurial veterans. It’s a space where camaraderie meets commerce, where the ethos of service blends seamlessly with the spirit of entrepreneurship. This community is free for all veterans, active duty members, guard, reserves, and their family members who wish to participate.

Our shared vision for the Skills After Service Community Group is straightforward yet impactful. We aim to create an active network of like-minded businesses and organizations that support each other, collaborate, and help promote each other’s endeavors. It’s about leveraging collective strength, sharing wisdom, and unlocking opportunities that span the width of our diverse membership base.

Since its launch in November 2023, coinciding with the opening day of VetBizWeek – a week-long celebration of virtual entrepreneurial training sessions during National Veterans Small Business Week – the response has been nothing short of inspiring. In just a few short months, nearly 500 active members have joined the community, engaging in a rich exchange of promotions, marketing tips, referrals, and cross-promotions of various products and services.

The evolution of the Skills After Service Online Community is a testament to the enduring bond that unites the veteran community. It exemplifies how a shared past can pave the way for a prosperous future, one connection at a time. What started as an experiment has blossomed into a thriving ecosystem that empowers veteran business owners and military families to reach new heights.

This is not just an opportunity to grow your business but to be a part of a movement that celebrates and supports the entrepreneurial spirit of our nation’s heroes.
