The Martin J. Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University (SU) announced it will receive federal grant funding of about $330,000 for the first year of its newly established veterans business outreach center (VBOC).
The Whitman School’s Falcone Center for Entrepreneurship will use that funding to provide counseling, training, assistance, business assessment, and mentoring to veteran and service-disabled veteran entrepreneurs.
The VBOC will also help reserve, National Guard, and transitioning service members who are interested in starting or expanding a small business.
The Whitman School announced the grant award in a news release issued Wednesday.
