POE wraps up 7-day entrepreneurial boot camp in Halifax
June 12, 2017
Prince’s Operation Entrepreneur (POE) just completed its second seven-day entrepreneurial boot camp of the 2017 season. 21 transitioning Canadian Armed Forces personnel attended the seven-day intensive boot camp at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Topics included marketing, accounting, social media, finance and human resources.
The business boot camps, often considered a ‘mini MBA’, are led by university faculty in 4 areas in Canada and provide veterans with all the training they need to start and run a business. The previous boot camp was held in Quebec City and the remaining two will be at Memorial University in Newfoundland and the University of Regina in Saskatchewan, July 23rd to 29th and August 20th to 26th respectively.
Developed as a program of Prince’s Charities Canada in 2012 to address a gap in entrepreneurial resources for transitioning military, POE is the only program of its kind in Canada, filling a much needed void in the transitioning employment landscape. POE is a national program that offers the men and woman who have bravely served our country the education, tools and resources they need to build confidence, develop networks and start their own successful businesses.
