A new initiative that will help Brooklyn military veterans launch and grow their own businesses has just received a $50,000 boost from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).
The program will combine services from New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering in Brooklyn and the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce to provide a full menu of services to entrepreneurial vets.
Participants will receive education and technical support from NYU faculty and mentors and access to technology, service providers, customers and potential investors. From the Chamber, entrepreneurs will receive business development services, along with mentorships and other networking opportunities.
