The Veterans Future Lab is open to graduates of NYU Tandon Future Labs’ Veteran Entrepreneurship Training (VET) program, early-stage companies with one to five full- time staffers, and seasoned veteran entrepreneurs willing to mentor and seeking expanded office space.
Recent surveys show that more than a third of all returning military veterans harbor entrepreneurial ambitions, but just under 5 percent launch their own businesses, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. With its launch in 2017, the Veterans Future Lab bridges that divide between ambition and reality.
