Boots to Business: Reboot is a two-day course introducing veterans to business ownership fundamentals. During the event, presenters lead participants through the key steps of evaluating business concepts and developing a business plan. The program introduces participants to a network of lifetime business support available through SBA’s partner network, including: Veteran Business Outreach Centers, Women’s Business Centers, Small Business Development Centers and SCORE Counselors.

“The military has a track record of producing outstanding leaders, explaining why nearly 1 in 10 U.S. entrepreneurs are veterans” states Karen Friel, SBA’s West Virginia district director. “Trainings like this help develop their skills, connect them to the right resources, and lead them to be successful entrepreneurs in their communities.”
