Startup Training Resources Inspiring Veteran Entrepreneurship (STRIVE) Program

Within the sphere of SLCC’s Everyday Entrepreneur Program (EEP), the Mill and VBRC, in conjunction with Syracuse University’s Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF), is offering our veterans the Startup Training Resources Inspiring Veteran Entrepreneurship (STRIVE) Program. IVMF entrepreneur programs have trained over 80,000 veterans by leveraging the skills, resources, and infrastructure of higher education institutions.

The IVMF STRIVE is an extensive review and deeper dive into the ways and means of starting your business as introduced in the EEP. It demonstrates SLCC’s, the Mill’s, and the VBRC’s commitment to those who have served our country in the military.
