TAKE THE NEXT STEP TO STARTING A BUSINESS
AFTER YOUR MILITARY SERVICE
IS SMALL BUSINESS OWNERSHIP FOR YOU?
Entrepreneurship and small business ownership is a key opportunity for transitioning service members and veterans as they transition to civilian life. Veterans are natural entrepreneurs, possessing the skills, experience and leadership to start businesses and create jobs. According to the most recent U.S. Census Data, veteran-owned firms represent 9 percent of all U.S. firms. If you have a passion and the drive to start a business, this intensive training workshop is a perfect fit for you!
This two-day Transition Assistance Program (TAP) Self- Employment Intensive Training Workshop is offered in collaboration among the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University (IVMF), the Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
This program is available to all active duty, transitioning, and retired military service members and their spouses. You will learn if starting a business is right for you, how to evaluate the feasibility of your business idea, and much more! Please sign up today, as seating is limited.
