News Journal

Veterans have the character, discipline and skills needed to succeed as small business owners and entrepreneurs.

In conjunction with one of the “Four Pillars” (Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation) upon which the American Legion was founded, the Department of Ohio American Legion has announced it will be hosting a Boots to Business Reboot program at its headquarters at 60 Big Run Road Delaware, Ohio 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Thursday, March 30.

Boots to Business Reboot is a two step entrepreneurship training program for veterans and their spouses that provides participants:

• an overview of business ownership as a career vocation

• an outline and knowledge on the components of a business plan

• a practical exercise in opportunity recognition

• an introduction to available public and private sector resources.

Step one is the Introduction to Entrepreneurship course eligible to veterans of all eras, servicemembers (including members of the National Guard and Reserves) and their spouses. The course is instructed by the SBA and its partners who are skilled business advisors.

Step two is an eight-week online Foundations of Entrepreneurship course instructed by a consortium of professors and practitioners led by the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University.
