Through its one-of-a-kind entrepreneurship program, Dog Tag empowers veterans with service-connected disabilities, military spouses, and caregivers, to discover their passions and talents. Twice a year, small cohorts (14–16 people) of Dog Tag 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 training — through rotations at their successful social enterprise, Dog Tag Bakery. Additional Learning Labs on a variety of topics help them to reflect on their goals, develop soft skills, and improve their overall well-being. Ultimately, 93% of Fellows graduate, move 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 from which they came.
