The University’s Stephenson Entrepreneurship Institute will work with local and national partners to hold a new seminar and luncheon program designed for military veterans considering a career in entrepreneurship, the University announced in a news release on Monday.

The “Is Entrepreneurship For You?” event will be held in November and was organized in conjunction with the National World War II Museum in New Orleans and Humana and highlights the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities at the national level and the University’s program. The event will include presentations by several guest entrepreneurs.

“Humana’s national commitment to America’s veterans and their families is not new, ” Humana Government Business Group President Tim McClain said in the news release. “Humana has worked with the U.S. Department of Defense as a TRICARE health benefits provider since 1996, and with the Veterans Administration as an operator of Community-Based Outpatient Clinics, over the past several years.”

The event’s keynote speaker is Donald Cravins Jr., who is Sen. Mary Landrieu’s chief of staff. Cravins has been with Landrieu’s staff since he joined the team in 2009 as staff director and chief counsel of the United States Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship. He also served in the House of Representatives, the Senate and as a Judge Advocate with the Louisiana National Guard.

The event will be held Nov. 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the WWII Museum. While the event is free, only 100 may attend. Registration can be completed online at www.vetentrepreneur.eventbrite.com. Doors open at 9:30 a.m.

Veterans Entrepreneurship Program

Riata Entrepreneurship Center—Oklahoma State University

~ empowering veterans to take control of their futures through their own ventures ~

The disabled Veterans Entrepreneurship Program (VEP) at Oklahoma State University helps disabled veterans launch and grow their own businesses. Our purpose is to empower our service men and women to make a successful transition back to civilian life by creating financially sustainable ventures.

VEP offers cutting-edge, experiential training in entrepreneurship and small business management to veterans from all branches of the armed services. VEP trains veterans to recognize and embrace the entrepreneurial spirit and gives them the tools to act on their dreams and passion. This rigorous program involves some of the nation’s top educators and subject matter experts on topics such as business model development, sildenafil funding, marketing, operations, accounting, and legal issues. Over the past three years, close to 125 veterans have graduated from the VEP and are now using the knowledge they gained to start ventures or take existing ventures to the next level.

This is a year-long program consisting of three phases:

  • Phase I              Concept Development & Self Study                    12/2-1/19          Online
  • Phase II             VEP Bootcamp                                                         2/1-2/8               Stillwater, OK
  • Phase III           Mentoring and Venture Development                 Mar-Dec

The VEP program is offered entirely free to any veteran accepted into the program. OSU covers all costs including: courses, instructors, books, and materials; as well as transportation to and accommodations in Stillwater and food and outings associated with the eight-day on-campus “Bootcamp” portion of the program held in February.

We are looking for veterans with an entrepreneurial dream. Please pass on this information to others who may be interested. A more detailed description of the program can be found in the attached brochure. For more information, or to apply to VEP, please visit our website http://eee.okstate.edu/vep. To have printed brochures or applications mailed directly to you please call us at 405-744-7552. Thank you in advance for your support.

Sincerely,
