Veteran-Owned Small Business Showcase

The University of Mary Washington hosted the Veteran Owned Small Business Showcase at the Stafford campus May 14.

During the event, veteran small business owners came together to showcase their offerings to a variety of businesses in the private and public sector.

President Richard Hurley also announced the Veterans Endowment, a fund that will support the advancement of veterans and their families through education at UMW.

“This fund will benefit honorably discharged service men and women, active duty service men and women and their immediate families,” said Hurley.

The event and the endowment were made possible by the Veteran Owned Business Executive Roundtable. The Veteran Owned Business Executive Roundtable is a program of the UMW Center for Economic Development established in July 2013 to support personal, professional and business growth for regional veteran owned small business executives.
