There's a new breed of startups sprouting in Brooklyn. And get this — the founders aren’t computer geeks. Instead of spending their 20s gaming and building software, these entrepreneurs were busy serving our country and its interests on land, air and sea.

Honorably discharged from the military, they’re now gearing up to join the innovation economy at New York University’s Veterans Entrepreneurship Training (VET) program held at the Tandon School of Engineering in Brooklyn.
