OHIO CHAMBER OF COMMERCE FOR VETERANS

Supporting Ohio's Military Connected Businesses

WHO WE ARE

With the 7th largest Veteran population in the country, Ohio is not only home to over 600,000 Veterans, but thousands more Active Duty, Reserve, and National Guard service members and their families, many of whom own and operate their own businesses. Despite the numbers, there seemed to be an inconsistency of information and disconnect among the Veteran entrepreneur ecosystem.

In 2022 a group of Veteran entrepreneurs set about to unite the military connected business community across the state, establishing the Ohio Chamber of Commerce for Veterans. Our mission is to cultivate a comprehensive entrepreneur ecosystem through community collaboration to promote the success of Ohio’s Veterans, servicemembers, and their families.
