New Center Aims To Help Iowa Veterans, Family Members Become Entrepreneurs

Omaha, Nebraska — The Iowa district office of the US Small Business Administration (SBA) is promoting a new center devoted to helping those who’ve served our country in uniform to launch or expand their own small businesses.

Ty Williams is director of the SBA’s Veterans Business Outreach Center, which opened in July in Omaha to serve Iowa and Nebraska.

The SBA opened this center in an effort to show its support for this important community, which Williams says includes past and current members of the Iowa Army and Air National Guard and Reserves. Williams says she knows first-hand how hard it can be to start or grow a small business, as well as the challenges veterans face transitioning into the civilian workforce.


While the center is based in Omaha, Williams says the services are available to all Iowa veterans and their family members.

Available programs include Boots to Business, business training, and counseling, as well as help with business loans and veterans business certification. Click here for more information.
