Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) April 26, 2013
On April 26, Scott Brodsky, the founder of copier company Empire Digital Products, supports returning veterans turning to entrepreneurship.
An article in The Washington Post suggests that returning veterans give entrepreneurship a try. It states that there are “more than 1.6 million service personnel that have transitioned from military and Department of Defense employment to the civilian workforce in recent years.”
In a difficult economic environment, veterans might benefit from federal programs that help them to create jobs through entrepreneurship. The skills that veterans have gained in the military can be easily transferred to entrepreneurship because “veterans are used to taking risks, used to running large-scale operations, used to managing people, resources and money,” according to veteran and program manager of VA Accelerator in the Department of Veteran Affairs, Phillip Selleh.
There are a number of other programs that will help veterans to with education, financial resources and mentorship.
Scott Brodsky, the owner of leading copier company Empire Digital Products, says that these programs are a great way to help those who served our country to transition back into the workforce. “Entrepreneurship programs can give veterans everything they need to know about starting their own company,” he says. “I know from my own experience that starting a business is difficult, and who deserves the help more than our veterans? These programs have the ability to help these talented individuals and boost our economy through the creation of businesses and jobs.”
