National Veterans Small Business Week begins in Southern Colorado Oct. 30-Nov. 2


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO)-- This week (Oct. 30-Nov. 2) marks National Veterans Small Business Week, and this year, the Colorado Veterans Business Outreach Center (VBOC) is hosting a series of events.

Since 2013, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has celebrated and connected small business owners who are service members, veterans, and spouses. Now, The SBA Colorado District Office, Colorado VBOC at Mt. Carmel, and its partners will work to connect these small business owners with free to low-cost resources nationally and locally that will help them start, grow, expand, or recover their businesses.  

On Monday, Oct. 30, in Pueblo, the Southern Colorado Rural Resource Forum will be holding an event from 11-1 p.m. at Pueblo Community College.

This seminar will highlight small business resources in rural Southern Colorado.  

On Tuesday, Oct. 31, it’s back to Colorado Springs where veterans currently enrolled at UCCS can attend an introduction to entrepreneurship from 11-1 p.m.

On Wednesday, Nov. 1, from 8-4 p.m., Mt. Carmel will host its "Boots to Business Reboot."

This class, offered by the SBA, will provide an overview of entrepreneurship and business ownership fundamentals.  

Veterans, of all eras, active-duty service members, and spouses are eligible to participate.  

On Tuesday, Nov. 2, Mt. Carmel will also host an educational workshop on the Veteran Small Business Certification Program.

This is for all veteran-owned small businesses that are self-certified as service-disabled with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

From 1-3 p.m., participants will learn about competing in the federal marketplace as a veteran-owned small business, small disadvantaged, or service-disabled.
