10-week, in-person, free course for Veterans to learn the steps and get tools to help in starting their own company
Provides free training and access to resources helping Veterans establish or grow a start-up venture. Legal counseling, investor relations training, management practices, and more are taught weekly. This course does not require or use Post-9/11 GI Bill or MGIB funds.
I attended the inaugural course, and know the program has since changed a bit to accommodate different companies. The folks running the program are very knowledgeable and really want to see more Veteran-founded companies succeed. Their partners range from the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce to the NYS Assembly to the Small Business Administration. I used their legal resources, some of the tech resources, and continue to reach out to their instructors and their extended network. It's one of the best resources I found in NYC for starting a company, and I hope to see more Veterans and families participating and partnering! I just wish they could offer more cohorts and take on more candidates.
