Millennial Veteran Entrepreneurship: Research on the Next Generation of Veteran Entrepreneurs
Historically, veterans have been more entrepreneurial than non-veterans. However, millennial veterans participate in entrepreneurship at a lower rate than millennial non-veterans. Important demographic differences exist between entrepreneurial millennial veterans and older veterans. This study examines how millennial veteran entrepreneurs differ from their non-veteran peers and veterans of previous generations, finding that millennial veterans tend to be more diverse. Additionally, a larger share of millennial veterans are women. The analysis suggests that policymakers should address the gap in entrepreneurship for millennial veterans and tailor support to account for their changing demographics.
