VET was designed for veterans who want to transition into entrepreneurship after completing their service. Participants in the program learn from startup companies and industry leaders through hands-on experiential learning, mentorship, and capstone projects. Through the program’s business and technology training, participants are given the tools to turn aspirations into career opportunities and new ventures. Upon successful completion, graduates earn an VET Certificate from NYU Future Labs and Bunker Labs New York.
Applicants must be U.S. military veterans or active servicemembers with demonstrated interest in entrepreneurship and/or technology. A DD-214 or other proof of service may be requested.
Participants seeking an VET Certificate must complete all coursework and the capstone project.
Each session of the 14-week program will include an in-class lecture on an entrepreneurial subject (product development, sales, accounting, legal, etc.), mentoring by subject matter experts, and start up team collaboration.
The program concludes with a Demo Day for the veteran venture teams to present their businesses to investors, government officials, and other stakeholders of the program.
Each student admitted into the program will be fully subsidized for all course fees.
