SARASOTA — State College of Florida is hoping to work with veterans who want to grow or launch a technology business.
Along with veterans, the program will take in their spouses or current service members who are transitioning out of the military.
The three-month program begins Tuesday, Oct. 6 at SCF Lakewood Ranch in Sarasota. It is being hosted by the SCF Veterans Business Incubator.
“Whether applicants have a good idea, a business plan or an already established technology startup, the VBI program can provide the resources, expertise and mentorship necessary to succeed,” the college said in a news release. “The three-hour sessions combine experiential education, world-class accomplished mentors, guest speakers and networking opportunities to help entrepreneurs reach their goals as they learn about fundraising, business structure, product fit and other key tenets for business growth.”
