The U.S. Small Business Administration will co-host a two-day entrepreneurial training class to veterans who want to start or grow a business.

The workshop takes place Aug. 29-30 at Central Piedmont Community College, according to a statement Tuesday from the administration. The training will cover topics like business plan writing, setting up a legal structure and securing funding.

All honorably discharged veterans and service members, including the National Guard and Reserves, and their spouses are eligible to attend. The training takes place at 1112 Charlottetowne Ave., Room 215.

After the program, participants can do an eight-week follow-up online course on entrepreneurship that will be taught by a consortium of professors and practitioners led by the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University, according to the administration.

Registration is required and can be done here: http://boots2business.org/reboot/. The administration said reasonable accommodations for those with disabilities can be made if requested at least two weeks in advance by contacting Eileen Joyce at 704-344-6787 or Eileen.joyce@sba.gov.
