Entrepreneurship Training Program for Veterans and their Spouses

Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) is hosting a U.S. Small Business Administration program to give veterans and their spouses an overview of business ownership as a career.

This day-long program will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday, January 24 in Bldg. #5, Rooms B & I on the DMACC Ankeny Campus. It is free to veterans and their families.

“Veterans have the character, discipline and skills needed to succeed as small business owners and entrepreneurs," said DMACC Veterans Services Coordinator Don Enright. “This program will help veterans and their spouses be better prepared to start or grow a veteran-owned business."

Boots to Business Reboot is a two-step training program that provides participants an overview of business ownership.

Step One is the Introduction to Entrepreneurship course eligible to veterans of all eras, service members (including member of the National Guard and Reserve) and their spouses. The course is taught by the U.S. Small Business Administration and its partners, who are skilled business advisors.

Step Two is one of the online follow-on courses instructed by a consortium of professors and skilled business advisors from the SBA Network.
