East Colorado Boots to Business

Seminar for Entrepreneurial-Minded Veterans, Guard, Reserve or Transitioning Active-Duty Service Members & Spouses

This great opportunity for Colorado’s military community to learn everything needed to start or grow a small business! Presented by the East Colorado Small Business Development Center, the U.S. Small Business Administration, and SCORE.

Boots to Business: Reboot is a two-step training program that provides participants an overview of business ownership as a career vocation, an outline and knowledge on the components of a business plan, a practical exercise in opportunity recognition, and an introduction to available public and private sector resources.

Step One is this Introduction to Entrepreneurship course eligible to veterans of all eras, active-service members (including members of the National Guard and Reserve), and their spouses. This course is taught by the SBA and its partners, who are skilled business advisors.

Step Two is an online follow-up course taught by a consortium of professors and skilled business advisors from the SBA Network.
