Veterans Fast Launch
The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and SCORE, America’s premier source of free and confidential small business advice for entrepreneurs, are committed to providing mentoring, tools and training support to military personnel and their families through the “Veterans Fast Launch” program.
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. The program provides a package of services, and free software combined with SCORE’s mentoring program. The aim is to help veterans, their spouses and families succeed as small business owners.
As part of the Fast Launch program, the AICPA will connect veterans with CPAs across the country for up to 5 hours of free financial advice on starting a business. Veterans can visit https://www.aicpa.org/press/pressreleases/2011/aicpapartnerswithscore.html to learn more about the comprehensive tax- and financial-planning services that America’s CPAs provide entrepreneurs, to connect with a CPA or to find additional free resources designed to help veterans manage their finances.
In addition to their extensive education and training, CPAs have robust resources available to assist veterans. They include materials available through an AICPA partnership with the U.S. Small Business Administration and financial education information tailored to the unique needs of veterans on www.360financialliteracy.org, the profession’s financial literacy initiative.
