Louisiana Veteran Entrepreneurship Program
The Louisiana Veteran Entrepreneurship Program, a partnership between Louisiana Economic Development, the Louisiana Department of Veteran Affairs, the Louisiana National Guard, the Louisiana Business & Technology Center and LSU Executive Education is a program designed to boost business opportunities for Louisiana veterans.
Selected participants will take part in a three-week, online-learning program, followed by a face-to-face training session. This intensive model will outline critical steps to start, operate, fund and launch a business while giving veterans the tools needed to develop their business ideas. Training will include business planning, marketing, financing, capital formation and other aspects of business development.
Tentative topics include:
Once veterans complete LVEP, they will be provided small business resources in their communities for follow-up support and small business counseling. Louisiana’s Small Business Development Centers, business incubators and other small business partners will be available for ongoing business coaching after completion of the program.
