Military personnel have specific needs as business owners.  VtSBDC works with service members as well as their families and business partners to prepare the business to be as healthy as possible going into a deployment, and to assist the person who is responsible for the business on a day-to-day basis while the service member is deployed.  We hope that the Business Readiness Guide will alleviate some of the stress of a temporary succession plan, and that the Returning to Your Business Guide will pave the way for a smooth transition upon the veterans’ return.

The guides are available here and include sample letters, checklists and worksheets that allow you to customize action steps to your needs.

To further explain what the guides are, and how they can be used, check out our short video here:
