OWNING A VETERAN-OWNED SMALL BUSINESS

ABOUT BOOTS TO BUSINESS REBOOT
Boots to Business Reboot is a two-step training program that provides participants an overview of business ownership as a career vocation, an outline and knowledge on the components of a business plan, a practical exercise in opportunity recognition, and an introduction to available public and private sector resources.
Step one is the Introduction to Entrepreneurship course eligible to Veterans of all eras, Service members (including members of the National Guard and Reserves) and their spouses. This course is instructed by SBA and its partners who are skilled business advisors.
Step two is the follow-on course Boots to Business Revenue Readiness Course – Business Model to Business Plan. This course is for veterans and spouses who have demonstrated a strong interest to move forward with their small business concept.
StartWheel’s mission is to centralize and mobilize efforts that foster the growth of entrepreneurism in our regional innovation economy. We aim to support and cultivate an entrepreneurial network in HRVA where talent, resources, information and leadership come together.
