Florida State Teaches Veterans Business Skills

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida State University is in the midst of hosting 24 military veterans for an “entrepreneurship boot camp” for veterans with the disabilities.

All of the veterans, including five from Florida, have suffered disabilities during their time with the military. The eight-day period of workshops and sessions aim to teach how to start a business or improve an existing one.

The program has run for seven years and consists of entrepreneurship training and small business management. The session is free and runs through Tuesday.
