Small Business Assistance
The Small Business Administration and its Office of Veterans Business Development offer a wide range of help for vets thinking of starting a business.
One is Boots to Business, available for military members transitioning out of the service and their spouses. It begins as a two-day on-base course and continues as an eight-week online course that covers entrepreneurship in-depth.
Vets have access to outreach centers across the country, which provide help with a business plan, feasibility studies, training and counseling, and small-business mentorship.
