Tyler Veterans Entrepreneurship Boot Camp scheduled April 27

TYLER, April 22, 2013--The 2nd Annual Tyler Veterans Entrepreneurship Boot Camp is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., on  Saturday, April 27, at the Tyler Junior College West Campus Small Business Development Center (SBDC), located at 1530 SSW Loop 323 (Room 104).

This program was started in 2012, and is anticipated to be an annual educational event available to Veterans, their spouses and family members.

The focus of the Boot Camp program will be on the management, financial and marketing aspects of business. These topics will be covered extensively by professionals and would benefit those who wish to start or expand a business. The SBDC will be available after the Boot Camp to help new business owners.

Smith County is home to nearly 18,000 Veterans as well as a Super Armory and the Texas Veterans Home that opened in November 2011.

Mayor Barbara Bass established the Mayor’s Veterans Roundtable initiative in May 2011  to further develop and implement a Community Blueprint for supporting and enhancing Veterans services with a focus on employment, education, housing, medical care and mental health.

“Since the creation of the Veterans Roundtable, tremendous progress has been made toward strengthening the relationship between Veterans, their families and the Tyler community,” said Bass.  “The Tyler Veterans Entrepreneurship Boot Camp will enhance that goal.”

Lunch, snacks, coffee and drinks will be provided at no cost.
