Veterans: We are ready to help you start your business!

The Veterans Florida Entrepreneurship Program (VFEP) is a comprehensive suite of training options designed to enhance the entrepreneurial skills of Veterans in Florida. The program meets the needs of Vetpreneurs in every stage of their entrepreneurial journey from idea to launch and growth.

Action Zone is the network partner providing the VFEP in the Tampa Bay and surrounding region. The program includes workshops, hands-on activities and expert guidance to create a viable, sustainable business. 

The one-hour information session is your opportunity to discover the resources available to you as a Veteran, and provides an overview of the program components and how it can help you build a business of your own. It is followed by a no-host networking event at Rock Bros Brewery where you have the opportunity to meet alumni of the VFEP who can share their experience with the program and the Action Zone team.

On July 12 you will meet our special guest, Curtez Riggs, 1st Sergeant, USA, Retired, founder of MilBlog Media and the Military Influencer Conference. Curtez is an Innovator and Digital Entrepreneur empowering service members and spouses to transition into digital entrepreneurship. He is a serial entrepreneur and self-proclaimed "dolphin who swims in Crypto." Curtez has generously provided the first VFEP cohort with complimentary tickets to the Military Influencer Conference in Orlando in September, so don't miss the opportunity to meet the man behind this incredible national resource for Vetpreneurs.
