The conference is exclusively for women veterans from all branches of the US military having served during any era with a passion for entrepreneurship and the desire to start or grow their own business. Participants will be exposed to accomplished entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship educators from across the United States. Training includes comprehensive instruction and mentorship focused on areas such as profit models, business plan development and unique funding opportunities for women veterans.
