AMTIS, Inc., President and CEO Barbara Stankowski participated in panel discussions at the V-WISE (Veteran Women Igniting the Spirit of Entrepreneurship) conference held in Chicago May 3-5, 2013. V-Wise is an entrepreneurial training program for women veterans and is a part of Syracuse University’s Institute of Veterans and Military Families. V-WISE is the only program in the nation, besides the Women’s Business Development Centers (WBDC) Women Vetrepreneurship Program (WVP), specifically directed at women veterans and entrepreneurship. As part of the conference the WBDC, through the generosity of the Deluxe Corporation Foundation, hosted the May 5th breakfast which included a panel discussion with successful women veteran entrepreneurs providing insight and inspiration for the attendees. The panel titled: Business Tales from the Front: A Candid Conversation with Women Vetrepreneurs, included:
Moderator: Master Chief Petty Officer Ginger Lee Simpson, U.S. Navy (Retired); Chief Operating Officer, amaZulu Inc.
Ms. Andrea A. Brown, President & CEO, Midas Auto Service Experts, Chicago Heights
Ms. Kimberlee J. Burt, Owner & Director, A Child’s Space
Ms. Harvetta A. Spann, President, BLS Group Inc.; Co-Founder, The “WAVE”
Captain Barbara J. Stankowski, U.S. Navy (Retired); Owner & CEO, AMTIS Inc.

Barbara also moderated the panel titled the Do’s and Don’ts of Government Contracting.

Highlights of V-WISE include online self-study followed by a 2 ½ day in person training in various US cities. Women veterans throughout the US apply for admission and at the conclusion of the training they are provided information on business development resources within their respective communities. The WBDC is a referral partner for V-Wise for program participants within its nine state Midwest service area. At the conclusion of the V-WISE conferences, V -WISE staff provide the WBDC with the list of all participants. The WBDC has committed to proactively contact the participants 2 weeks of the conclusion of the conference and enroll them in the business development programs and services of the Women Vetrepreneurship Program. The WBDC also uses it national network of contacts to connect out of area women veterans with business development resources in their areas.

The WVP is a comprehensive program for women veterans looking to entrepreneurship as a means for economic self-sufficiency. It is unique in that it offers women veterans a specific path forward, a detailed service plan with delineated activities and services and ongoing guidance and support to help them achieve their goals. The WVP integrates women veterans into expanded, proven WBDC business development training programs and services, including counseling, technical assistance, procurement assistance, Access to Capital with education and direct and micro-lending. It also includes an Illinois Department of Veteran Affairs-led and facilitated Women Veterans’ Affinity Group to educate participants about benefits and support services available via IDVA and other veteran organizations, to connect participants in a meaningful, ongoing ‘community’ and to assist them in accessing needed programs and resources. Specific highlights of the program include:
• Development and tracking of a customized ‘Service Plan’ to delineate business development and social service related activities for each women veteran client to achieve their specific goals
• Business development programs and services on an ongoing basis for every phase and every stage of small business development, sustainability and growth
• Participation in special business related workshops and events delivered by the WBDC
• Access to capital through WBDC direct lending
• Providing no-cost childcare services through the WBDC’s Childcare Business clients
• Forming and facilitating, on the business side, a Women’s Business Enterprise mentoring program in which women veterans are paired with successful small business women
• Maintaining a network of social services to support the women veteran clients
• Utilization, on the social service side, of existing mentoring programs and resources
• Connecting participants directly with veteran organizations and resources via on-site presentations and sessions at Affinity Group meetings, including outreach and resources related to Military Sexual Trauma, enrollment in VA healthcare, talks by VA Medical Center Women’s Clinic providers, etc.
• Marketing and Outreach
• Certification services for established veteran, minority and woman business enterprises

According to a recent Clinton Foundation survey, over 35% of women veterans are unemployed. The number may be even higher as we know this population is reluctant to ‘self-identify.’ Public sector entities, as well as numerous established and recently started organizations in Illinois, have rightly begun to focus their efforts on education and job training for all veterans. Unfortunately, having/acquiring skills has not translated into meaningful employment for the preponderance of women veterans. The ongoing economic crisis, lack of ‘definition’ regarding how skills acquired while in military service equate to specific job requirements, and the fact that men have accounted for 80% of the net new jobs since the recession (Chicago Tribune 7/17/12), are real impediments to economic empowerment for this population. Added to this issue is the fact that women veterans have special needs related to military sexual trauma and caregiver responsibilities.
