This study investigates whether a community entrepreneurial education program fuels entrepreneurial passion and increases consultations for veterans. In practice, transitioning service members should consider participating in entrepreneurship training courses with mentors and consult their informal networks. In policy, the VA and policymakers might partner to create more opportunities for veterans and civilians. Suggestions for future research include having a broader sample size, as well as measuring the structured entrepreneurship training courses' effectiveness.
