Feature Story: Business boot camp gives veterans confidence to chase their entrepreneurial dreams
Prince's Operation Entrepreneur (POE) is taking place this week at the University of Regina. The annual week-long business boot camp, in partnership with Prince's Trust Canada, Enactus Regina, and the Paul J. Hill School of Business, brings transitioning Canadian Armed Forces veterans from across the country to Regina to learn the skills necessary to launch their own businesses. University of Regina professors volunteer their time to lead sessions on topics including competitive advantage, market research, business planning, and financing. Now in its seventh year, the University of Regina is honoured to host the only POE business boot camp of its kind west of Quebec, and has more than 120 graduates.
