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.
We seek 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.
(VET-I Fall 2021 is currently in session from October 6 to December 22, 2021)
The VET-I Spring 2022 program will be held online on Wednesdays from January 26 to April 13, 2022.
The program is split into three parts:
Classes touch on prototyping, customer channels, business models, legal and accounting matters for startups, and more. Upon completion of the program, students are awarded a VET certificate from the NYU Tandon Future Labs.
All course fees for admitted students will be subsidized.
Participants must attend all classes, complete all coursework, and submit a capstone project.
