Qualifications for Selection

VETRN is accepting applications from prior service veterans, National Guard and/ or family members, who own a small business, to attend either: (a) the VETRN MBA Program on how to successfully grow their business, or (b) the VETRN Program in Entrepreneurship for early-stage businesses interested in developing a viable business plan. These programs are exclusively for veterans, service-disabled veterans, National Guard, and family members, and are free of tuition. Veteran business owners and family members who apply must have demonstrated a strong desire and commitment to grow their business and become successful.

To qualify for the VETRN MBA Program, they must have been in business for one or more years, have a sustainable revenue model and have a minimum annual revenue of $125,000 or greater.

If an existing business owner is beyond the start-up phase but does not meet the minimum requirements for acceptance into the MBA Program and is not yet ready to scale, they can apply to the VETRN Program in Entrepreneurship.
