GCO’s CEO testifies in front of Congress in support of Veteran Entrepreneurship

House Committee on Small Business: It was honor and privilege to have GCO’s CEO Scott Davidson testify yesterday in the hill in from of the House and members of Congress on ways to improve transitioning military service members access to entrepreneurship training and multiple ways to ease the business process for Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Businesses. Scott was able to highlight important programs like Boots to Businessand Institute for Veterans and Military Families – IVMF. Scott was pleased to also be able to speak about the importance of networking and mentorship with great programs like American Corporate Partners (ACP). Scott was also pleased to see the members of congress focusing on predatory lending practices that are focussing on the veteran small business owners and how we work to reduce this risk through further education of the service member. Every year more than 200,000 of military service members make the transition out of our military. Some pursue employment opportunities, others go back to school, or learn a new trade. And some decide to pursue the American dream and launch a small, innovative business. Again Scott was honored to be able to add I sight to the members of Congress that are going to decide on some upcoming significant changes to a wide range of programs.
