November is National Entrepreneurship Month 

Entrepreneurs have been known to fuel the train of American progress; they drive their dreams and are the backbone of the economy. In honor of their raw innovation and ingenuity, President Obama has declared November to be National Entrepreneurship Month. “We celebrate America’s innovators, support small businesses, and empower entrepreneurs to turn their visions into reality,” proclaims President Obama.
In celebration of National Entrepreneurship Month, the Veterans Business Outreach Center, VBOC, at Gulf Coast State College, is hosting Boots to Business Reboot, a no-cost two-day event to honor not only the savviness of American entrepreneurs but also the bravery and endurance of the American veterans.  Boots to Business Reboot is an entrepreneurial training program for Veterans and Military Spouses.
“Boots to Business Reboot is scheduled to highlight the second annual National Veterans Small Business Week.” According to Brenton Peacock, associate director for the VBOC, “This course is open to veterans and their families of all eras, including those in the National Guard and Reserves.” The event is November 6th and 7th in the Advanced Technology Center at Gulf Coast State College.
The two-step training program by the U.S. Small Business Administration, SBA, through public-private partnership with the Institute of Veterans and Military Families, the Marcus Foundation, and First Data Corporation will offer insight to those pursuing business ownership or other areas of self-employment.
The experts at the event will encourage ideas such as the importance of a business plan and the core ideas of business concepts. SBA resources are available for those who wish to attend the event, including start-up capital, technical assistance, and contracting opportunities.
