Converting your military experience to business ownership
While in the military, you developed a vision and set strategic goals, both essential skills for owning your own small business. While you may have all the discipline necessary for such a venture, having a professionally certified business consultant to assist along the way can be an additional asset.
Our expert consultants at the Florida SBDC at USF can assist you with:
- becoming a certified, veteran-owned business
- government contracting
- growth acceleration services
- import/export plans
- marketing strategies
- capital access for veterans
All of these services are available through no-cost, confidential consulting. In addition, many of our consultants have their own military background to draw on.
