Veteran Entrepreneur Program

HELPING VETERAN ENTREPRENEURS LAUNCH AND GROW THEIR BUSINESS

The Veteran Entrepreneur Program was created in 2013 with a mission to foster and promote Veteran Entrepreneurship throughout the State of Texas.  Our team of experienced Veteran Entrepreneur Business Consultants (VEBC) accomplish this in three ways:

  • We provide eligible veterans with a “Veteran Verification Letter” for new veteran-owned businesses.
  • We provide personalized business assistance through all phases of your business from start-up to exit.
  • We provide community outreach through a series of informational seminars, e-newsletters, and participation in resource partner events.

More than 35,000 new veterans call Texas home each year. Many transition directly into the thriving workforce while others redirect their skills and passion to achieving their dream of small business ownership. The Veteran Entrepreneur Program team of business consultants provide training, education and connections to help every veteran navigate through the processes of planning, launching and growing their business. Our team of consultants are veterans, business owners, and MBA graduates dedicated to your success.

Few veterans are fully aware of the wealth of resources available to help entrepreneurs achieve business success. These resources are available through the Federal Government, the State of Texas, and many local municipalities and non-profit organizations. The VEP works closely with these partners to ensure veteran entrepreneurs can connect and leverage these relationships.

The VEP team can assist with a myriad of typical business start-up needs such as; funding sources, regulatory considerations, business formation, franchising, business plan development, government contracting, and so much more. Since the program inception the VEP has assisted over 3,000 veterans with their dreams of business ownership. Why shouldn’t you be next?

Veteran Entrepreneur Outreach and Advocacy

Veteran Entrepreneur Seminar Series

Each year the Veteran Entrepreneur Program travels to different cities within the state of Texas and engages in a variety of seminars in partnership with local resources to provide relevant and localized business information, training, and resource connections. The seminar series provides veteran entrepreneurs and their families an opportunity to connect with local resources, advance their business skills and acumen, and connect with other like- minded veterans in their city.

Partnering with a vast network of subject matter experts, the VEP seminar series’ content may include topics on business plan development, funding options, target marketing, financial knowledge, government contracting, franchising, and business planning. This allows the veteran to identify early on, the skills needed to manage a start-up business as well as identify those areas that may present challenges to the business, requiring further consideration and development.
