Therefore, space is limited and early registration is encouraged. Registration will close once the facility’s maximum occupancy is achieved.

The purpose of the Veteran Entrepreneur Program (VEP) is to foster and promote Veteran Entrepreneurship throughout the state of Texas.
Texas receives more than 35,000 Veterans each year. Today’s Veterans are poised to be the backbone of a new generation of small businesses that can quickly build a sustainable new jobs base in Texas. Veterans are eager to build for themselves, their families, and their Veteran employees, long-term careers and secure retirements through small business ownership.
A wealth of information, support and resources is available to Veterans for starting, growing and thriving as entrepreneurs. The Texas Veterans Commission Veteran Entrepreneur Program is pulling all of the available resources together to 1) make them available to Veterans and 2) ensure Veterans are aware of those resources.
The Veteran Entrepreneur Program aims to bridge the gap between the available resources and Veteran entrepreneurs. Identifying funding sources, mentors, business opportunities and business education programs then providing that data in a one-stop-shop to demystify the business start-up process for would-be Veteran entrepreneurs and provide much needed support for fledgling Veteran Owned Businesses.
The ultimate goal of the Veteran Entrepreneur Program is the creation a veritable army of Veteran Entrepreneurs throughout the state of Texas. These Veteran Entrepreneur businesses will add value to the communities where they are established and create employment opportunities for other Veterans.
The Texas Veterans Commission Veteran Entrepreneur Program will be conducting Entrepreneur Information Seminars throughout the State beginning July 2012. Please check back for dates and times as they are announced.
