Testimonials from ‘Business Boot Camp’ Graduates

‘I gained a wealth of knowledge from participating in the Veteran Business Bootcamp program and the instructors – Judy McMillan-Evans and Erin Melnychuk. While participating in the Bootcamp, the exercise’s for ‘exploring your why’ and the ‘business model canvass’ were my favorite components and helped me the most in starting a successful business.’ – Sean

At 22, on a whim, I participated in the Veteran Business Bootcamp program. While I was the youngest in the classroom, It was the greatest decision of my life. The instructor Judy McMillan-Evans was judgment-free and treated me equally. Above all, Judy helped guide and focus my ambitions in a direction that has turned into two businesses! I am forever grateful for the Veteran Business Bootcamp. It’s changed my life and that of my family! – Elliott
