It’s back! NYU Tandon Veterans Future Lab is now accepting applications for its Veterans Entrepreneurship Training I (VET-I) program, held online. The no-cost 12-week skills-focused course is for US military veterans, service members, and military spouses who are early-stage entrepreneurs or looking to transition into entrepreneurship.
The deadline is September 7, and space is limited so apply now!
Almost 50 percent of World War II veterans and 40 percent of Korean War veterans owned or operated their own companies, according to Syracuse University. Today, just 4.5 percent of the more than 3.6 million men and women who have served in the U.S. armed forces since September 11, 2001, have launched their own businesses.
NYU Tandon seeks to raise that figure through the Veterans Entrepreneurship Training (VET) program. NYC-centric entrepreneurs, industry leaders, and our team at the Veterans Future Lab offer a curriculum that features a capstone project, hands-on experiential learning, and mentorship. You’ll graduate able to leverage learned entrepreneurial skills into new ventures and career opportunities. Graduates of VET-I are eligible to enroll in an upcoming Veterans Entrepreneurship Training - Level II (VET-II) program.
