On July 19 at the Action Zone informaiton meet and greet to enroll Veterans interested in entrepreneurship, you will meet our special guest Bobby Carbonell, Florida Air National Guard and Executive Director of Veterans Florida. Bobby's goal is to continue serving military members and Veterans by representing their interests at the State and National level. As the first Executive Director for Veterans Florida, he has built a team of professionals creating new programs to help Veterans find meaningful employment, obtain education and training in Florida, and start their own businesses. As an entrepreneur himself, Bobby understands the effort required and challenges presented when building and growing a business. He is an soldier and Veteran advocate, yes, but also an experienced comrade in entrepreneurship. 

The Veterans Florida Entrepreneurship Program (VFEP) is a comprehensive suite of training options designed to enhance the entrepreneurial skills of Veterans in Florida. The program meets the needs of Vetpreneurs in every stage of their entrepreneurial journey from idea to launch and growth.

Action Zone is the network partner providing the VFEP in the Tampa Bay and surrounding region. The program includes workshops, hands-on activities and expert guidance to create a viable, sustainable business. 

The one-hour information session is your opportunity to discover the resources available to you as a Veteran, and provides an overview of the program components and how it can help you build a business of your own. It is followed by a no-host networking event at Rock Bros Brewery where you have the opportunity to meet alumni of the VFEP who can share their experience with the program and the Action Zone team.
