Oklahoma State University and the Riata School of Entrepreneurship selects 40 - 45 service-connected disabled veterans each year to participate in a program designed to establish, create and grow new business ventures. Delegates participate in a 6 week online program prior to attending 8 intensive days of classes and activities at the Oklahoma State University campus in Stillwater. Upon completion of the program participants are paired with mentors to help guide and follow their progress for an additional 10 months.
Delegates may apply for the no cost program between May and September each year. Selected participants are notified in October. The program is fully funded by Oklahoma State University, local and national donors and previous delegates. "It is a program that continues to grow through the knowledge they are passing along to others. We budget every year to donate to this amazing program." says King.
