SBA, VBOC to Host Virtual Veterans Business Seminar

CASPER, WY – The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Wyoming District Office and the Big Sky Veterans Business Outreach Center (VBOC) have partnered to host a free virtual business seminar titled “Boots to Business: Reboot” on Nov. 4, 2020.

The seminar, geared towards veterans and their spouses and designed to provide an introduction to entrepreneurship, is based on the curriculum provided at traditional Boots to Business classes taught at military installations nationwide. Topics of instruction will include financing a business, selecting the correct legal entity, accessing market research, managing social media and more.

“Our communities thrive when veterans and military spouses choose to start small businesses after leaving service,” said VBOC Director Dustin Frost. “As we celebrate National Veterans Small Business Week, these events will connect even more Wyoming veterans with the resources and tools they need to help them succeed.” 

Each year the SBA connects and empowers service members, veterans, National Guard and Reserve members and military spouses during National Veterans Small Business Week (NVSBW). This year marks the seventh annual NVSBW and will be celebrated Nov. 2-6. Those interested can find a full list of events taking place across the country here.

“It’s always an honor to be a part of NVSBW and we take great pride in offering resources and support to veteran entrepreneurs,” said Jordan Belser, SBA Veterans Business Development Officer. “Those that attend this year’s “Reboot” will walk away a better understanding of what it takes to start a business and the resources available to veterans as they embark on their entrepreneurial journey.”
