Our Programs

Veteran Entrepreneurship Training (VET) Program

VET is designed for veterans who want to transition into entrepreneurship after completing their service. The program is made possible by support from New York Assemblyman Joseph Lentol.

VET is open to veterans with early-stage companies or ideas for companies. Participants in the program will learn from academic experts and industry leaders through hands-on experiential learning, mentorship, and capstone projects. Through the program’s business and technology training, participants will be given the tools to turn aspirations into career opportunities and new ventures. Upon successful completion, graduates will earn a VET Certificate from the NYU Future Labs and Bunker Labs New York.

Applications for the fall cohort are closed. Please follow us on F6S for updates on the spring 2017 cohort.
