For Veteran-Led Small Businesses

From service member to small business owner, your values are the same, but the challenges you face might be different. Google is here to help you grow your business with free tools and training, all in one place.


Start or Grow Your Business

You can now identify your business as owned, led, or founded by veterans by adding a “Veteran-Led” attribute to your business profile on Google, which will show up when people look for your business on Google Search and Maps. You can manage your business profile and add the attribute through Google My Business.
