Veterans’ Day Comes Early for The Howard Keating Show Listeners
I will be part of this wonderful event along with many other organizations throughout the country which will take place online April 6th through April 7th at .
For more than 30 years, Howard Keating – a veteran himself -- has been one of the nation’s strongest advocates for supporting small, developing or minority-owned businesses. He has been involved with over 25 start-ups and 16 turnarounds and his expertise spans everything from manufacturing, to software, to electronics, to land development, to health care. He has deep roots with the intricacies of federal programs and he organized and chaired the World Summit for Small Businesses in Washington D.C.
For this live, interactive Web-a-thon, over 60 associations and 200 companies have pledged to help our returned soldiers:
Get a new job;
Start a business;
Expand their business; and
Obtain up to $25,000 in business development loans.
“Our goal for this program is to get 1,000 veterans to apply for a job, and make 1,000 business contracts available to veterans,” said Howard Keating, CEO of Keating Network and host of The Howard Keating Show. “This is just the beginning. We will continue these Web-a-thons until all of our veterans and their families have established the financial independence they so deserve.”
