Are you one of the 40 percent of active military and veterans who have thought about starting your own business? If you are, join SCORE October 6 at the first Tampa Bay area Entrepreneur’s EXPO exclusively for active military, veterans and immediate family. You will find the EXPO at the St. Petersburg Marriott, 12600 Roosevelt Boulevard in St. Petersburg, from 9 AM to 4 PM. It’s open to all branches of service.
Classes will be presented at 10 AM, 11 AM, 1 PM and 2 PM teaching the nuances of entrepreneurship. Throughout the day, you will be able to meet with knowledgeable and experienced SCORE mentors. They can help you develop your idea for a business, start the process of building a business plan, or help you with other questions you have about starting or growing a business.
Our keynote speaker will be retired General Lloyd W. “Fig” Newton, who was the first black pilot to fly with the Thunderbirds aerial demonstration team. Since his retirement, General Newton has provided leadership to a number of companies including Goodyear and Pratt & Whitney, been selected as a senior military advisor to the Obama administration, and been chosen to participate in the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships.
