The aim of this chapter is to examine an entrepreneurial training program using a theoretical foundation to assess pedagogical and programmatic outcomes. First, the chapter begins by reviewing military veteran entrepreneurship. Next, key constructs previously shown to impact entrepreneurial capabilities and intentions are reviewed. Subsequently, the case used in this study of an entrepreneurial education program is shared, along with how the program impacted a cohort of military veterans. Finally, we provide a discussion about how these results should influence thinking about entrepreneurial training programs for veterans.
