Veteran entrepreneurial training coming to Roswell


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Military veterans, National Guard and Reserve members and their spouses interested in starting businesses or solo ventures can receive some free training next month.

A cooperative effort among several agencies has created the “Boots to Business: Reboot Training Program,” to occur Thursday, Nov. 2, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the New Mexico Military Institute, Daniels Leadership Center, Room 200.

This intensive two-step program provides veterans with an overview of business ownership, knowledge of the components of a business plan and an outline of one, a practical exercise in opportunity recognition and an introduction to available public- and private-sector resources.

The training program is presented through a cooperative effort by the U.S. Small Business Administration, the New Mexico Veterans Business Outreach Center, the Small Business Development Center, the Service Corps of Retired Executives, the Association of Women’s Business Centers, Syracuse University’s Institute for Veterans and Military Families, Cornell University and Mississippi State University.

Though the seminar is free, pre-registration is required and can be done online at sbavets.force.com. If you’ve already taken a Boots-to-Business course and would like to enroll in the Step Two online program, contact the SBA at boots-to-business@sba.gov.
