about us

The Rosie Network is a non-profit organization founded by military spouse, Stephanie Brown, after spending hours searching online for a contractor to do repair work on her home. Preferring to hire a veteran, a vision was born to promote military family-owned businesses to the American public. Shortly after, Rosie’s List was launched, the first-of-its-kind search tool featuring verified veteran and military spouse-owned businesses. Understanding the complex needs of small businesses the Service2CEO Program was developed to educate and empower the next generation of military-connected entrepreneurs!

Why Rosie The Riveter?
