It was with much deliberation that we decided to cancel this event. With low registration numbers we knew it was time to regroup and look at different ways to engage with you and our military community entrepreneurs more effectively.

The Event

A dynamic workshop conference for veteran business owners and entrepreneurs who are looking to start, grow, or better manage their businesses.


Conference attendees will work to build their network and skills through panels and workshops providing expert advice, a chance to work with fellow veteran business owners, and "real world" skill building to jump start or energize your business through workshop learning.

Networking with Vets

It's a great opportunity to make connections with other veteran business leaders and aspiring entrepreneurs. Who better to meet with, ask questions of, and look to build partnerships with than others who have the same values, discipline, and drive as you?
