In its latest effort to give military veterans guidance on joining the entrepreneurial scene, New York University graduated the first class of its Veteran Entrepreneur Training program this week.
The ten-week series of free sessions and lectures took the group to the Varick Street, DUMBO, and Urban Future Lab incubators run in Manhattan and Brooklyn by the NYU Polytechnic (NYU-Poly) School of Engineering. Five teams comprised of 13 veterans held a demo day for their ideas this week, says Kurt H. Becker, vice dean for research, innovation, and entrepreneurship at NYU-Poly, who oversees the program.
