New Episode of the Entrepreneurially Thinking Podcast
 The latest Entrepreneurially Thinking podcast is live!

Most of us don’t realize that every branch of the U.S. military is represented in St. Louis. Or that the Veteran’s Business Resource Center (VBRC) is based here and served a region that includes Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri and Illinois.

For active service members, veterans and military families, resources like the VBRC are important to their success while enlisted and when they transition back to civilian life. Needless to say, keeping talented military professionals in our region, especially as business owners, is a good thing for St. Louis.

To learn more about what VBRC does and the people it serves, we’ve invited Executive Director Darcella Craven and Donovan Foster CIO, Principal Consultant, at Brinex to talk about the agency’s programs and services and what that means to the men and women who participate in programs like Boots to Business.
