Veterans Entrepreneur Conference Planned November 13


The Oklahoma Small Business Development Center has partnered with the U.S. Small Business Administration to present the 2nd annual Veterans Entrepreneur Conference on November 13 at 8:30 a.m. at the McMahon Centennial Complex on the campus of Cameron University in Lawton.

The OKSBDC office in Lawton is part of the Southwestern Oklahoma State University Center for Economic and Business Development in Weatherford.

This year’s theme of the conference—Small Business, Big Technology—is designed to assist veterans in becoming more successful entrepreneurs by using the many technology tools available today.

Topics include On-line Marketing Strategies, Social Media Tools, Cloud Computing, Mobile Business Solutions and Future Technology Trends. Participants will also receive veteran specific information about business start-up, business planning, business loan programs, successful business operation strategies and government contracting.

Veterans as well as the general public are invited to attend the Veterans Entrepreneurship Conference, which is free of charge. 

“Due to the large attendance last year and the keen interest in this year’s topics, we’ve moved to a larger venue and opened the event to the public,” said OKSBDC Regional Director Mary Eichinger said.

Lunch is provided and there is no cost to attend, but seating is limited, so registrations are due by contacting Morgan Gould at or 580.48.4946.
