Applications are now open for the October 2021 2-day virtual program that mentors future entrepreneurial leaders. Patriot Boot Camp is partnering with Berkeley College to help the military community grow more tech startups.
Are you a service member, Veteran, or military spouse entrepreneur who wants to learn how to start and grow your business? According to the Small Business Administration, Veteran-owned businesses represent 9.1% of American owned businesses. Studies show that Veterans tend to out-earn non-Veteran entrepreneurs.
Patriot Boot Camp is partnering with Berkeley College to help the military community grow tech startups.
Patriot Boot Camp, a 501(c)3, is providing a 2-day virtual fall program presented by Berkeley College on October 14-15, 2021.
Including those overseas
“For the first time in our 9-year history, Patriot Boot Camp will also be recruiting from OCONUS (overseas). Service members, military spouses, and Veteran entrepreneurs who are thinking about starting a business or currently have a new start-up are ideal candidates for this program,” said Jennifer Pilcher, CEO and 2013 alumna of the PBC organization. “We are thrilled to provide this opportunity to those currently serving overseas who normally would not be able to travel to an in-person boot camp.”
