The value of social innovation and being a responsible and conscious business was the focus the recently completed the Social Impact Business Bootcamp, sponsored by the Texas Veterans Commission (TVC) Veteran Entrepreneur Program (VEP). “I always knew that I wanted to use the business to help women in other countries, but now I have a plan to follow, and I have a better method for achieving that goal,” said a participant. Successfully completing the rigorous 4-week business training were veteran entrepreneurs Susan Brown, Quiana Cannon, Ashley Booker-Knight, Erin Lievens, Paige O’Hanlon, Patricia Monreal-Polk, Shannon Sanchez, and Debra Thomas. Congratulations to all.
