Veterans have the character, discipline and skills needed to succeed as small business owners and entrepreneurs. Wondering what it takes and how you can prepare? Enroll in Boots to Business Reboot.


Boots to Business Reboot is a two-step training program 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, and an introduction to available public and private sector resources.

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

Step two is one of the online follow-on courses instructed by a consortium of professors and skilled business advisors from the SBA Network. If you’ve already attended an in-person Boots to Business or Reboot class, visit to sign up for one of the online B2B follow-on courses.

For Veterans looking to start or improve your business, I highly recommend the Boots to Business Reboot course with VBOC. I took the course online with SoCal VBOC | Southern California Veterans Business Outreach Center today, and it was an amazing supplement to lay out many of the resources available to veterans, to help build and improve, not only our business but network as well. Looking forward to taking the Boots to Business Revenue Readiness course at Mississippi State University in the coming months!
