"Who better to 'live' the American Dream of business ownership,
than those who have defended that dream through military service."

A Collaboration with Syracuse University and SBA’s Resource Partners

Boots to Business builds on SBA’s role as a national leader in entrepreneurship training. Leveraging our ongoing collaboration with Syracuse University's Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF), SBA delivers Boots to Business with the support of its field offices and Resource Partners, such as the Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs), Women’s Business Centers (WBCs), SCORE, and Veterans Business Outreach Centers (VBOCs). SBA’s expert Resource Partner network already provides entrepreneurship training to more than 100,000 veterans every year, many of whom are service members transitioning out of the military.
