“DAV Patriot Boot Camp is a truly unique and focused program dedicated solely to helping train and equip our nation’s veterans and military spouses with the means and the methods to jump start their entrepreneurial spirit. Patriot Boot Camp creates the foundation that inspires veterans and military spouses to develop and elevate their companies while cultivating their skills and knowledge to build and sustain their own businesses. The best practices, networking and resources Patriot Boot Camp provides are world class and have a tremendous impact on the success rate and impact of veteran and military spouse owned businesses.”

“Talking with other founders and participating in the business networking activity allowed me to look at my business differently and try new approaches to growth. It was also really invigorating to be around other veteran entrepreneurs. Running a business is hard work but to see you are not alone and that what you are doing is special helps put fuel back in the fire.”

“I joined PBC with a problem I wanted to solve and no idea how to do it. After going through PBC I was able to refine my idea and get a plan started to start chipping away at it. At this early stage, PBC was pivotal to ensure I was on the right track, in the right mindset and ready to travel the road ahead. The mentoring from my specific industry was invaluable, since it was only my second time pitching my idea and I received valuable advice and connections to get me off my feet. If you are a veteran, this is your tribe.”

“Attending Patriot Boot Camp in 2015 is one of the best decisions I’ve made in my entrepreneurial journey. The 3-Day program helped me to learn so much about what I didn’t know about entrepreneurship, and it did so in an intimate setting amongst fellow military veterans. The curriculum at Patriot Boot Camp was comprehensive, yet digestible, and taught by experienced mentors who led the program. I walked away with a solid foundation to start what is now Another thing I loved about Patriot Boot Camp was the community. It was inspiring to be surrounded by other veterans who are also passionate about entrepreneurship. We shared our experiences, learned from each other, and built lasting relationships. If you’re a veteran or military spouse who is thinking about starting a business, I highly recommend Patriot Boot Camp. It’s an amazing program that will help you to learn what you don’t know, build your network, and launch your business with confidence.”

“Patriot Boot camp was a great experience and offered a unique educational opportunity with business development insight, mentorship and a network to other military affiliated entrepreneurs. The information provided helped Troopster immensely to optimize several processes. I strongly recommend PBC as a resource for veteran and milspo entrepreneurs.”
