Financial Boot Camp: Starting a Veteran Owned Business

Starting a business while settling in after your military service is an exciting proposition, but it’s also an incredibly daunting undertaking. If you or someone is a veteran and would like to start up your own business, this is the session for you. Learn the importance of financial planning, choosing the right product for your business, and how to manage your portfolio.

Financial Boot Camp: Creating Your Business Plan

Your business plan serves as a road map for future success and is essential in obtaining financing for your veteran owned business. This step-by-step session will guide you through the process of creating your business plan that will eventually be your ticket for financial lending. Learn the importance of a detailed business plan, how to complete a business plan, and why it’s important to keep your business plan up-to-date.

Financial Boot Camp: Choosing a Business Structure

A key step to legally operating your veteran owned business and potentially obtaining financial aid from the government is choosing a business structure and name. Once you have chosen a structure and name, you will need to register them with the appropriate agencies within your state. Learn about the different types of business structures, choosing the best business structure for your business, and how to legally register your business.
