About Boots to Business Reboot

Boots to Business Reboot brings the Boots to Business curriculum off installations and in to communities for veterans, members of the National Guard and Reserve, and military spouses.




The B2B curriculum starts with the “Introduction to Entrepreneurship” two-day course that provides you with an overview of the opportunities and challenges of business ownership. During this course, you will learn business fundamentals and techniques for evaluating the feasibility of your business concepts.

After completing the “Introduction to Entrepreneurship” course, you can choose to continue your journey with optional courses and follow-on actions through the Boots to Business (B2B) Follow-on Program Suite, B2B Revenue Readiness (B2B RR), or connecting with a VBOC and/or other SBA resource partner.

Innovative Delivery & Partnership

To deliver Boots to Business Reboot and support Veterans and military spouses, SBA collaborates with its resource partners (Veterans Business Outreach Centers, Small Business Development Centers, Women's Business Centers and SCORE). SBA also partners with the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University on program curriculum development, course material and instruction. Beyond Boots to Business Reboot, SBA's network of partners offer continued training and technical assistance, with an emphasis on access to capital and federal contracting opportunities.

SBA and its partners ensure that every Veteran and military spouse has the resources they need in their local communities to start and operate small businesses, achieve post-service career success, and strengthen the Nation's economy.
