To be considered, you should review our application process below and follow the instructions. The earlier that you apply, the sooner you can get into our Veteran Entrepreneur Network. That means you will be one step closer to beginning your entrepreneurial journey.
Everything starts with you. When you begin our process you need to be ready to join Startup Veterans and get started. Just like you, our time is valuable and we are 100% committed to your success from the start. So before you even begin to fill out our application, you need to make sure that you have thought through your business idea and you need to be prepared to hit the ground running hard. There will be no more excuses and we are not looking to waste time with tire kickers who are looking for an easy way to make money. Nothing is easy about starting your own business and it all begins with having the right mindset. If you are ready to change your life, we are ready to help you succeed. So if you feel that you have what it takes, here is what you need to do:
Like we said, we’re not going to request to look at your resume or review your academic achievements. What we want is a chance to dig deeper and truly understand why you want to become an entrepreneur and join Startup Veterans. So make sure you take the time to review every question and we expect you to provide detailed and thoughtful answers. Once you answer our questions, you can use the essay section as an opportunity to tell us anything you think will make you standout from the many other applicants looking to join the program.
This will be your opportunity to speak with one of the members of our team. We want to get to know you better and give you the chance to learn more about the program first hand. We will discuss your application and try to get a better appreciation for your background, character, and mindset. You will also have the chance to get any questions you may have answered. The goal is to 100% make sure you are right for Startup Veterans and whether Startup Veterans is right for you.
Once we complete your phone interview and we both feel that we are a good fit for each other, it will be time to get you registered in one of our upcoming classes! No time is better because there is nothing we love more than having another motivated Vetrepreneur join Startup Veterans! Once you are in, you will quickly find out that we are much more than just an education program. The reality is that we are a family of veterans who all do whatever it takes to help each other succeed!
You will see from the start that a lot will be expected from you and you will always get out what you put into the course and the group. You will also see that we believe in the old adage “work-hard, play-hard” because part of becoming an Vetrepreneur is getting to know your peers, sharing old war stories, and doing your part to make the learning environment fun and interactive.
