“Boots to Business Reboot is scheduled to highlight the second annual National Veterans Small Business Week.” According to Brenton Peacock, associate director for the VBOC, “This course is open to veterans and their families of all eras, including those in the National Guard and Reserves.” The event is November 6th and 7th in the Advanced Technology Center at Gulf Coast State College.
The two-step training program by the U.S. Small Business Administration, SBA, through public-private partnership with the Institute of Veterans and Military Families, the Marcus Foundation, and First Data Corporation will offer insight to those pursuing business ownership or other areas of self-employment.
The experts at the event will encourage ideas such as the importance of a business plan and the core ideas of business concepts. SBA resources are available for those who wish to attend the event, including start-up capital, technical assistance, and contracting opportunities.
