Warrior Rising launches free business program for veterans

Warrior Business

Warrior Rising, an organization founded by Veterans for Veterans in 2015, offers free online courses to provide business support to veterans. They aim to assist in creating sustainable businesses and job opportunities, using both the internet and face-to-face networking events to create a unified front.

Their latest initiative, a complimentary month-long online program for Service-Disabled Veteran Entrepreneurs (SDVET), will launch on June 13, 2024. The U.S. Small Business Administration has endorsed this program, which encompasses various resources, including Warrior Academy, Warrior University, a specialized Accelerator program, and virtual coaching sessions.

This comprehensive system of support is structured to deliver entrepreneurial skills and resources crucial to business growth. Participants will be able to apply directly the knowledge they gain to their businesses. These sessions will cover business plan creation, financial management, and strategic marketing, among other topics.

Moreover, Warrior Academy and Warrior University offer in-depth and dedicated courses, respectively, to empower entrepreneurs at different stages. The Business Accelerator program seeks to fast-track business growth, while virtual coaching sessions provide personalized guidance and support.

Application procedures and course details are available on the Warrior Rising website. Accuracy, especially regarding contact information, is crucial to prevent miscommunication. Applications and supported documents are required in PDF format, and late entries are not accepted.

The extensive course curriculum includes topics such as starting a business, market understanding, strategic planning, business law principles, and global business strategies. The emphasis is on real-world application, with case studies, practical examples and even internship opportunities included.

The course will commence via Zoom at 7 p.m. ET (4 p.m. PT) starting June 13, 2024, for four consecutive Thursdays. A link will be sent to participants 1-2 business days prior to each session. For busy veterans, the course is also offered quarterly, and all sessions are recorded for those who can’t attend the live sessions. Access to these recordings will be sent via email within 48 hours of the course ending.

If any technical difficulties arise, our support team is available to assist. For those in different time zones, please adjust according to your location.

The course cannot be accessed on-demand; applicants are encouraged to consider their availability before enrolling. We eagerly anticipate embarking on this educational journey alongside our veterans.
