Veteran entrepreneurship is a great fit for many people leaving their military career. Veterans have a unique ability to assess risk, to make decisions, and to persevere through adverse situations. Most veterans possess the foundational skills to be a successful entrepreneur:
- Discipline under pressure
- Dedication / focus
What many veterans lack are the entrepreneurial skills necessary to start and build a sustainable business:
- Develop a business model to support their idea
- Identify and target potential customers
- Identify potential revenue streams
- Explore the financial feasibility of a business model
Veterans own and operate businesses with a larger employee base. Veteran-owned businesses have better longevity and sustainability than non veteran-owned businesses. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are 2.5 million veteran-owned businesses, and those businesses employ almost 6 million people. A veteran owns one in ten of every ten businesses in the United States.
Like entrepreneurs, veterans navigate an uncertain world in pursuit of a goal. In order to do this, veterans need basic business and entrepreneurship skills.
Our Veterans Entrepreneurship syllabus provides a structure for students to develop those skills.
