Entrepreneurship Essentials Workshop and Resource Fair


From service to success -- entrepreneurship resources for the military community

Join the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), in collaboration with Naval Station Rota’s Fleet and Family Support Center to learn about entrepreneurship basics and opportunities for business development both while stationed at Rota and when you return stateside. From honing your business plan and protecting your brand and ideas, to market analysis and financing, we’ve got every angle of entrepreneurship covered.

Panelists include the U.S. Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the USPTO, Kathi Vidal, and highly regarded experts in business development and intellectual property protection. Attendees will also hear first-hand from successful military spouse and veteran entrepreneurs and be able to network with home-based business owners and peruse their goods and services before and after the event.
