A Three Part Program

An informational video shown during the core TAP course introduces entrepreneurship as a post-service career option.  

A two-day course offered as a TAP training track course for those interested in learning more about the opportunities and challenges of
business ownership. Subject matter experts and practitioners from SBA and its network of partners teach the course at over 165 military
installations worldwide. Participants learn business fundamentals and techniques for evaluating the feasibility of their business concepts.

After completing the Introduction to Entrepreneurship class, transitioning Service members and their spouses can elect to further their
study through an instructor guided high-touch eight-week online course taught by professors from a consortium of accredited universities
led by the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University. By dedicating a minimum of 10 hours per week to connected
and independent study, participants work through the fundamentals of developing an actionable business plan.  After completing Boots to
Business, participants will have the tools and knowledge they need to identify a business opportunity, draft a business plan, and launch
their enterprise.

To deliver Boots to Business and support transitioning Service members and veterans, SBA collaborates with its Resource Partners
(Veterans Business Outreach Centers, Small Business Development Centers, Women’s Business Centers and SCORE), the Department
of Defense and other federal agencies and local military installations. SBA also partners with the Institute for Veterans and Military
Families at Syracuse University on program curriculum development, course materials and instruction.  Beyond Boots to Business, SBA’s
network of partners offers continued training and technical assistance to more than 100,000 veterans every year in all areas of business
ownership with an emphasis on access to capital and federal contracting opportunities.  Boots to Business is a worldwide program. The
standardized curriculum enhanced by the tailored approach and expertise of the instructors from SBA’s partner network ensures that
every transitioning Service member has access to training and the resources they need in their local communities to start and operate
small businesses, achieve post-service career success, and strengthen the Nation’s economy.
