“Operation Startup and Grow” is a free conference for veterans slated on Nov. 2, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., at the Rose State College Professional Education & Training Center in Midwest City.
The conference is to connect veterans with the resources to successfully transition from their service job to creating their own small business, said Victoria Armstrong, the director of the Oklahoma Small Business Development Center’s Veterans Assistance and Services Program.
