May 25th, 2015 / By: / Industry News, News

The U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Boots to Business program has now trained 25,000 transitioning service members. Initiated as a pilot in 2012 and expanded nationally in 2013, Boots to Business is the entrepreneurship track of the Department of Defense’s Transition Assistance Program (TAP).

The program provides military service members and their spouses the opportunity to explore business ownership and self-employment, helps them evaluate the feasibility of their business concepts, and connects aspiring business owners to SBA’s network of resource partners, including the Veterans Business Outreach Centers (VBOC); Small Business Development Centers (SBDC); Women’s Business Centers (WBC); SCORE; and the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) at Syracuse University. Boots to Business is available at no charge on more than 165 military installations worldwide.
