 Start A Business, Build A Business

Saturday May 20, 2017

Hear success stories from veterans who decided that if they did not follow their dreams they would be working for someone who did. Talk with business owners who made that decision and transition . . . overcame obstacles, made their start-up their mission and are glad they did!


Talk to MNDOT, MetroCouncil, MN Procurement and the CERT Program for Minneapolis/St.Paul about why they want to work with a vet owned business.

Build an organization that others want to buy from. Create teams that share your mission. Make sales fun. Grow your business with a social media strategy. Feel comfortable pitching to partner (B2B) or to resell your service or product (B2C). Talk with four fellow veteran business owners who have faced and overcome these challenges.

Venture Bank (SBA guaranteed loans and more), micro loans with WomenVenture, Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants & seed funding for your tech business -”show me the money”, DEED for how to access MN state incentives and funding . . . it’s right here!

COST: $10.00/person which includes continental breakfast, lunch, plus an Einstein Bagels Gift Card (combined up to $17 value).

Registration is limited to the first 150 registrants.
