FDU's nationally-ranked Rothman Institute of Entrepreneurship invites veterans to apply for admission to Veterans Launching Ventures. This is the perfect opportunity for any military veteran who owns a small business or is considering starting a business.
This free 10-week certificate program, currently in its seventh cohort, starts on March 21, 2013 and allows veterans to assess business ideas and develop them into an action plan to move forward at the conclusion of the program.
The Veterans Launching Ventures program will provide the skills and support for veterans to seize entrepreneurial opportunities and launch small businesses and nonprofits that will help them achieve personal success that also helps the community and regional economy.
This unique program combines in-person instruction with online education to teach students the fundamentals of starting a new venture and ensure the development of competencies in the many steps and activities associated with creating and sustaining a new business or nonprofit organization. A team of experienced faculty and successful entrepreneurs will work with students, providing an interactive and informative experience. They will introduce entrepreneurship ideas and concepts, and demonstrate how students can apply them to their current or potential business or at their place of employment. One year of mentoring is provided to students at the conclusion of the program, along with access to all of the Rothman Institute’s innovative programs and networking opportunities.
The Veterans Launching Ventures program will also be offered online nationally in March 2013.
