Patrick E. Alcorn
Patrick E. Alcorn served nine years in the United States Army, including time as a cadet at the United States Military Academy where he played Army Football while completing a Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering Management. He is a Global Good Fund Fellow, social impact small business owner, Certified GrowthWheel™ Business Advisor, Certified ProfitMastery™ Facilitator, and Certified John Maxwell Team Executive Coach, speaker, and teacher who utilizes his combination of the West Point experience, a master’s in business administration and relevant real-world knowledge to help high achievers, business leaders, and seasoned professionals align their priorities with their purpose, passion, and potential.
He is the founder and Director of the Veterans Business Outreach Center University of Texas Arlington and a recipient of the SBA Veteran Small Business Champion of the Year Award. Having worked with more than 3000 veteran small business leaders, Patrick was troubled by the lack of awareness of and access to small business resources. As such, he founded the annual Business Beyond the Battlefield Conference to educate, train, and inspire the military-connected business community. Patrick is married to his wife, Michelle, of thirty-four years; together they have four children and eight grandchildren.
