Veteran Business Outreach Program Blog Entry

Posted By Scott Miller, Friday, January 07, 2011

Starting January 1st 2010 a new "Veterans Business Outreach Program” will be offered by The New York State Small Business Development Center at Jamestown Community College-Jamestown, New York.  This new program will focus specifically on veteran entrepreneurship, education, and creating a resource guide of local support agencies. 

The Veterans Business Outreach Program will offer veterans the opportunity to access small business assistance for starting a business, classes to become a veteran certified business for government procurement opportunities, and credit and non-credit classes offered by the college.

Specific assistance resources are available to veterans wanting to investigate business ownership as a career.   Veteran Business Planning guides are available to veterans who come in for one on one business counseling.  Other resources include Veterans Franchising Guide, and the Buy Veteran initiative.  The Veterans Business Outreach Program is designed to assist veterans’ access veteran business programs on the local, state, and federal level.  

Outreach to veterans has consisted of a "Veterans Business Outreach Program” press release, and placement of program brochures at Department of Labor Offices, VA Health Center, Industrial Development Agency, and the local Chamber of Commerce.   We are also working with JCC on a marketing initiative to rent one to two billboards showcasing the "Veterans Business Outreach Program.”

The Veteran Business Outreach Program is sponsored in part by The Gebbie Foundation, The Coleman Foundation, and the New York State Small Business Development Center.
