Madison, NJ -- On June 9th, 2016, the Veterans Launching Ventures program put on by the Rothman Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, wrapped up its spring hybrid course in the Orangerie. Students made their final presentations on their business plans and were evaluated by faculty and mentors.

At the end of the session, students received certificates of completion, networked, and celebrated with chocolate cake. This ten-week entrepreneurship course for veterans prepares “vetrepreneurs” in the art of business planning, financial literacy, and is fully funded by the Walmart Foundation, TD Charitable Foundation, and Bank of America.

Part of the Silberman College of Business since 1989, the mission of the Rothman Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship is to teach and support entrepreneurship and innovation in the academic, business, and nonprofit communities. An outstanding entrepreneurship curriculum taught by an excellent faculty has helped make the academic program among the top 20 in the nation (as ranked by the Princeton Review).
