The Rosie Network is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote military family-owned businesses to the public. U.S. Navy SEAL entrepreneurial spouses founded the Rosie Network in 2012 to address the high unemployment rates of military spouses and transitioning veterans with the goal of strengthening today’s families through entrepreneurship. Patterned after Angie’s List and with the “We Can Do It” spirit of the iconic WWII Rosie the Riveter, the Rosie Network connects more than 6,000 military-family entrepreneurs with customers seeking their products and services.
