Earlier this month, the SBA announced an expansion of their post-military entrepreneurship training efforts which will commence in July.
The new program intends to:
… give participants “the tools and knowledge they need to identify a business opportunity and launch their enterprise.”
Now, those same course offerings will be made available free of charge to any interested veterans who have already left service.
The adapted curriculum will feature not only business planning for would-be entrepreneurs but also ways to connect to “a network of lifetime business support,” including SBA’s veteran business outreach centers, women’s business centers and agency counselors.
Here’s the schedule:
- July 11-12: Washington, D.C.
- July 24-25: Dallas-Fort Worth
- July 29-30: Miami
- July 31-Aug. 1: Chicago
- Aug. 5-6: Boston
- Aug. 6-7: Albuquerque, New Mexico
- Aug. 8-9: Kansas City, Missouri
