SBA’s Boots to Business Reboot is a national program designed to introduce veterans and their spouses to the basics of small business ownership, including techniques for evaluating the feasibility of their business concepts, the components of a business plan, an introduction to private and public resources, and opportunity recognition.
In addition, participants are introduced to SBA resources available for start-up capital, technical assistance, and contracting opportunities.
This program is also recommended for those who wish to grow an existing veteran-owned small business.
