1. What is the Veteran Tycoon Enterprise Programme?

It offers service leavers, veterans, their spouses and dependents as well as our WIS community the opportunity to explore and experience self-employment.

  • The programme lasts for 12-weeks and a guaranteed, no-risk start-up loan of up to £250 is provided.

There will be:

  • A one-day virtual workshop at the beginning to develop the skills to write a business plan.
  • Mentoring during the trading period and a virtual full group review mid-way through the trading period.
  • A further virtual reflection session at the end of the 12-week period to explore the results and to look at your next steps.
  • The programme provides access to a series of online resources to support your start-up journey, that you use at your own pace.
  • Optional live webinars and live virtual networking events provide access to a wider range of people and resources to further supplement your learning.
