MINNEAPOLIS –The Small Business Administration (SBA) invites veterans and their spouses to a free entrepreneurship training course in Eden Prairie, Minn. Boots to Business Reboot (Reboot) is a two-step training program that helps veterans learn what it takes and prepares them to dive into business ownership.

Reboot has been designed specifically for veterans and their spouses. In step one of Reboot, veterans will get an overview of business ownership and business plan development, a practical exercise in spotting opportunities and an introduction to available public and private resources.

The first step of Reboot will be held on Wednesday, July 26, 2017 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Minnesota Bankers Association, 8050 Washington Ave South, Suite 150, Eden Prairie, MN 55344.
