One Stop Shop for Veteran Entrepreneurship

The Center of Excellence (COE) for Veteran Entrepreneurship unites veteran-owned businesses (VOBs), researchers, small business program managers, policymakers, resources, and private and public companies in an organized effort to make transitioning service members, veterans, and their families successful business owners. The Center is designed to be, and function as, the hub of veteran business ownership. This is accomplished by leveraging the resources and established networks of Syracuse University, the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF), and their partners and the bringing together of all relevant stakeholders and networks into a cohesive ecosystem focused on veteran/spouse-owned small business.
