The Department of Defense’s Transition Assistance Program (TAP) is now working with the U.S. Small Business Administration in a program called Boots to Business (B2B). B2B provides participants with an overview of business ownership and is open to transitioning service members (including National Guard and Reserve) and their spouses on many military installations.

The two day, in-person course, is designed to provide transitioning military personnel with the tools and skills needed to transition from military service into business ownership. After completion of the in-person course, students can continue their training online through a series of courses that vary from market research to revenue readiness.

With veterans owning nearly 1 in 10 U.S. small businesses across the country, this program could not have started soon enough. If you are about to go through your base TAP program, you can sign up for the Entrepreneurship Track and attend the two day in-person course yourself.
