Boots to Business is for transitioning military service members and takes place on 17 military bases in the CBP’s VBOC service area.

Created by the SBA, Boots to Business is a two-day entrepreneurial education curriculum that is an elective track within the Department of Defense’s revised Transition Assistance Program (TAP).  The curriculum provides valuable assistance to transitioning Service members exploring business ownership or self-employment. In addition, participants are introduced to SBA resources available to help access start-up capital and additional technical assistance.

“The CBP counselors and volunteers have been instrumental in helping me increase my knowledge and confidence in business ownership. Because of their guidance, I’ve been able to expand my practice and move into a larger facility with more employees.”
