The University’s Stephenson Entrepreneurship Institute will work with local and national partners to hold a new seminar and luncheon program designed for military veterans considering a career in entrepreneurship, there the University announced in a news release on Monday.

The “Is Entrepreneurship For You?” event will be held in November and was organized in conjunction with the National World War II Museum in New Orleans and Humana and highlights the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities at the national level and the University’s program. The event will include presentations by several guest entrepreneurs.

“Humana’s national commitment to America’s veterans and their families is not new, help ” Humana Government Business Group President Tim McClain said in the news release. “Humana has worked with the U.S. Department of Defense as a TRICARE health benefits provider since 1996, and with the Veterans Administration as an operator of Community-Based Outpatient Clinics, over the past several years.”

The event’s keynote speaker is Donald Cravins Jr., who is Sen. Mary Landrieu’s chief of staff. Cravins has been with Landrieu’s staff since he joined the team in 2009 as staff director and chief counsel of the United States Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship. He also served in the House of Representatives, the Senate and as a Judge Advocate with the Louisiana National Guard.

The event will be held Nov. 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the WWII Museum. While the event is free, only 100 may attend. Registration can be completed online at www.vetentrepreneur.eventbrite.com. Doors open at 9:30 a.m.
