The VBOC mission is to conduct outreach to any and all veterans throughout the state that have a desire to start, sustain or expand a business.  The VBOC, along with a variety of Resource Partners and the U.S Small Business Administration, is the source for business counseling, mentoring, training, tools and resources designed to assist transitioning service members, veterans and military spouses in attaining their business goals.

The VBOC conducts Boots to Business entrepreneurial seminars through the Transition Assistance Programs (TAP) at military installations throughout the state.  Additionally, Boots to Business, Reboot seminars are conducted to accommodate individuals that may not have access to military installations.

The Boots to Business seminars are scheduled by the TAP counselors several times per year for each installation.  The Reboot seminars are provided on as needed basis and coordinated with a variety of resource partners to ensure the widest possible audience.
