SAN ANTONIO - The San Antonio Chamber of Commerce is planning to re-up an entrepreneurial bootcamp for military veterans that has proved to be a success after its first year.

The program, which is free, launched in March with a goal of encouraging more military veterans preparing to leave the service to consider becoming entrepreneurs.

It has focused on the cybersecurity field because that is where many local veterans have gained valuable experience working with the 24th Air Force Cyber Command.

So far, the program has attracted 26 veterans and has seen two spinoff companies in various stages of development, including the new cybersecurity firm Infocyte.

The bootcamp consists of four quarterly programs with the first one focused on business strategy and planning, the second on business financing, the third on sales and marketing strategies and the final session on human resources.

Locations for the sessions rotate between various sponsor companies in the San Antonio area.
