MTI reaches to Veterans through its DFW Veterans Business Assistance Program. With the help of an advisory committee comprised of representatives from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the SBA, the Texas Veterans Commission, the Texas Veterans Leadership Group, the Center for New Ventures and Entrepreneurship, Veterans of Foreign Wars, The Texas Chapter of Elite Service, Disabled Veterans Owned Businesses, and other volunteers, MTI will develop and carry out an aggressive outreach program to inform returning veterans of help available to start a business. The program is geared to help returning Afghan and Iraqi veterans who wish to start a business.
An MTI staff person will meet with the interested veteran and mutually assess the readiness to start a small business geared towards susccess.
The assessment will include a self-analysis questionnaire on readiness to become a small business owner.
Based on that assessment the veteran entrepreneur will be provided with the opportunity to attend one of the three free training programs valued at $200 to $400. Read more about the DFW Veterans Business Assistance program.
