Succeeding As Civilians - A Recent 60 Minutes Segment About Veteran Entrepreneurs

A friend just made me aware of this recent 60 Minute Segment.   The show aired this past Sunday, and anchored by CBS reporter Sanjay Gupta, the segment addresses the needs of returning veterans to learn the basics of business before launching themselves as entrepreneurs.  The show does an excellent job of addressing the frustrations of wounded veterans in securing jobs, and the hope that is provided by the innovative Entrepreneur Boot Camp for Veterans, now being offered at several business schools and in on-line configurations.

Disabled veterans are getting help finding work in a tough job environment. Air Force veteran Mike Haynie has created a course to teach vets how to launch their own businesses. Sanjay Gupta reports. - 60 Minutes - Succeeding As Civilians

The report makes clear that there is a need to scale this program and those like it beyond the hundred who are being served to the tens of thousands of returning vets who need these services.

I encourage you to watch the video, and then to ask yourself the question: "Is there something I can do to help to scale this program to make it available to vets in my community?"
