Through its one-of-a-kind entrepreneurship program, Dog Tag Inc empowers service-disabled veterans, military spouses, and caregivers to discover their passions and talents. Twice a year, small cohorts (13-15 people) of DTI Fellows engage in five months of hands-on entrepreneurship training, culminating in a Certificate of Business Administration from Georgetown University’s School of Continuing Studies. Fellows gain real-life small business experience – from product development to human resources – through rotations at DTI’s successful social enterprise, Dog Tag Bakery. Additional Learning Labs in a variety of topics help them to reflect on their goals, develop soft skills, and improve their overall well-being. Ultimately, 91% of Fellows graduate, moving on to start new businesses or jobs, continue their education, or focus on their health and recovery – with many choosing to give back to the veteran and military communities. Won’t you give back too?
