Institute Partners With Small Business Organizations to Help Veterans


The AICPA has partnered with SCORE, an organization that provides free mentoring and workshops for small business entrepreneurs, to provide mentoring, tools and training support to military personnel and their families through the “Veterans Fast Launch” program of the Joining Forces initiative.

 

Joining Forces, started by first lady Michelle Obama and Jill Biden, the wife of Vice President Joe Biden, helps mobilize communities to offer service members and their families opportunities in the areas of employment, education and wellness.

 

As part of the initiative, the AICPA, SCORE, the Walmart Foundation, Intacct and other technology partners have joined to create the “Veterans Fast Launch” program, which consists of a package of services, scholarships, mentoring and free software to help veterans and their families succeed as small business owners.

 

As part of the program, the AICPA will connect veterans with CPAs across the country for up to five hours of free financial advice on starting a business. Veterans can visit aicpa.org/veterans to learn more about the comprehensive tax- and financial-planning services that CPAs provide entrepreneurs, to connect with a CPA, or to find additional free resources designed to help veterans manage their finances.
