Dilworth, MN (WDAY TV) -- Veterans and their families interested in starting or growing a business got some advice this afternoon.

The local Small Business Development Center hosted the event at the Dilworth VFW. Veterans learned about resources available like consulting, lenders, and government contracts.

Many programs specifically aim to help veterans with businesses.

Cathy Lindquist, executive director, says, "What we did is to provide, get everybody together, so that we could tell them about the resources in one location versus having to go to the separate locations. So, we just had everybody speak on what they have to offer."

Partners involved included Clay County Veterans Services and the Department of Employment and Economic Development
