About the Veteran Business Outreach Center Program

Our mission: The UTPA Veterans Business Outreach Center (VBOC) is designed to help create, retain and develop businesses and to contribute to the success of entrepreneurs who are members of the U.S. miliatry community including Veterans, Service-Disabled Veterans, Reservists, National Guard members  and Active-duty service members preparing to transition from military service to business ownership.

The UTPA Veterans Business Outreach Program is Funded in part through a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration to serve as a clearinghouse of business and technical assistance for those veterans interested in starting or expanding a business.
