Why Start a Veteran-Owned Small Business?
Over the next few years more than 250,000 service members will transition into civilian life annually. With the jobless rate persistently high, and unemployment among veterans outpacing the national average, training in entrepreneurship makes sense.
As a veteran you are a natural entrepreneur. You are a disciplined, goal-oriented self-starter. Accustomed to accountability, you know the value of being decisive and flexible. Take the step today to create your own path toward success.
About Boots to Business
Boots to Business is an entrepreneurial education program offered by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) as an elective track within the Department of Defense's revised Transition Assistance Program called Transition Goals, Plans, Success (Transition GPS). The curriculum provides valuable assistance to transitioning service members exploring self-employment opportunities by leading them through the key steps for evaluating business concepts and the foundational knowledge required for developing a business plan. Participants are also introduced to SBA resources available to help access start-up capital and additional technical assistance.
