How the SBA Helps Veterans

Three Business Resources for Veterans

May is Military Appreciation Month. Each year, the SBA serves over 200,000 veterans, service-disabled veterans and military spouses across the United States and at military installations around the globe.

To veterans: You served our country, now let the SBA serve you. The following are three ways the SBA serves veterans:

1. Boots to Business is a two-step entrepreneurial program offered by the SBA on military installations around the world as a training track of the Department of Defense (DOD) Transition Assistance Program (TAP).

2. Boots to Business: Reboot extends the entrepreneurship training offered in TAP on military installations to veterans of all eras and their spouses.

3. Veteran Business Outreach Center (VBOC) provides entrepreneurial development services such as business training, counseling and mentoring for eligible veterans owning or considering starting a small business.
