The PenFed Foundation Veteran Entrepreneur Investment Program has named Jacksonville the 19th best city in the nation for veterans to start a business.

The City’s Military Affairs and Veterans Department contributes to the success of Jacksonville’s veteran and military population by developing and providing resources that connect them to employers. Such offerings include the Vetrepreneur Small Business Resource Guide; Jobs4Vets, a website hosted in partnership with 497 local or locally based companies; the annual Vetrepreneur Summit and career fairs throughout every year.
