Presented by the Greater Irving – Las Colinas Chamber of Commerce
The Greater Irving-Las Colinas hosted a Veterans Forum on Dec. 2 to assist Veterans wanting to start their own businesses. This was a joint partnership of the Chamber, SBA, and SCORE.
More than 30 veterans registered to participate in the Forum which was sponsored by Irving-based VHA and Novation, who focus on hiring Veterans. The program included a success story by entrepreneur Major General (Ret) Al Zapanta, an overview of programs and resources available by Wayne Huddleston Veteran Business Development Officer with the SBA, and an introduction to the mentorship of SCORE by Chuck Rudnick, a retired executive of AT&T who provides free counseling services at the Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber.
