Boots to Business Reboot is an entrepreneurial education and training program offered by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The course provides an overview of entrepreneurship and applicable business ownership fundamentals. Veterans of all eras, Active Duty Service members (including National Guard and Reserve), and their spouses are eligible to participate. During Reboot, participants are introduced to the skills, knowledge, and resources they need to launch a business, including steps for developing business concepts, how to develop a business plan, and information on SBA resources available to help. The program is facilitated by subject matter experts from the SBA, the Veterans Business Outreach Center and SBA's extensive network of skilled business advisors. This session will also include information on starting a franchise. You'll have the opportunity to network with other veterans and hear testimony from those who've found success as entrepreneurs and franchise owners.
