COMMAND POST MISSION

The Wisconsin Veterans Chamber of Commerce is proud to present Command Post, a year-long business development program for veterans, which kicks off on November 1st, 2019.

We support military veteran entrepreneurs and their families as they launch and scale businesses.

The Command Post is Wisconsin’s only coworking program exclusively dedicated to veteran-owned businesses.

Located at Ward 4 in the Historic Pritzlaff building, the Command Post offers veteran entrepreneurs the resources, education, and support they need to successfully start their businesses.

NEW IN THE 2019-2020

Command Post selectees will receive free access to Daymond on Demand, a month-long interactive course facilitated by Shark Tank's Daymond John. This course alone is valued at $3000, but is absolutely free for participants.

Additional perks:
- 24 hour access to Ward 4 in the historic Pritzlaff Building, which boasts free Stone Creek coffee, WiFi, and a state-of-the-art collaborative working space.

- Ongoing support from business leaders and mentors.

- Monthly business development luncheons, hosted and taught by prominent business leaders (2nd Tuesdays, 1130am @ Ward 4).

"Why am I trying to build this business?

You write the question down and you answer it.

The next question is who do you want to become and you answer that. You will discover who you are a person and how this business can help inspire you and how everything can come into alignment.

This also helps you find the courage to do it. Not just starting a business, but creating a true identity.
That is what Command Post taught me and helped guide me in becoming who I am today.

This is when I truly discovered who it is I want to become and where I want to be with my business."
