Request for Qualifications for Entrepreneurship Program

Veterans Florida seeks responses from qualified vendors to administer the fiscal year 2023-24 Entrepreneurship Program (“Program”). The Program, established under s. 295.22(3)(e), F.S., connects business leaders in the state with veteran participants seeking to become entrepreneurs and may include activities and assistance such as peer-to-peer learning sessions, mentoring, technical assistance, business roundtables, networking opportunities, support of student organizations, speaker series, or other tools within a virtual environment. The Program is implemented across a network of Florida-based partner entities throughout the state of Florida. Veterans Florida’s objective is for veterans to finish the Program with the skills and confidence to become successful business owners or grow their business. The Program offers a pipeline for veteran entrepreneurs to take a business idea from conception through execution and scalability. The Program does not guarantee participants that an idea will turn into a fully operational business. Program participants can expect to understand the entrepreneurial process and put their newly learned entrepreneurial skills to work.

Veterans Florida seeks to contract with multiple entities to administer the Program.
