Veteran Students at John F. Kennedy University

At John F. Kennedy University, a primary focus is on providing high-quality educational opportunities to the veteran community. The transition from military life to civilian life isn’t always easy, which is why a number of programs and services are available to help. As service members begin the next chapter of their lives, John F. Kennedy University offers the support needed to fulfill higher-education goals, and prosper in a chosen career.

Veteran Business Seminar Series
Thinking about starting a business? The best way to learn the ins and outs of embarking on a veteran-owned business venture, is meeting with well-established veteran entrepreneurs. Made possible due to a generous grant by Wells Fargo Bank, John F. Kennedy University brings veteran students, and their spouses, a tuition-free Veteran Business Seminar Series through the Institute of Entrepreneurial Leadership.

Led by notable veteran business owners, each series consists of six one-hour sessions. The first series (A) begins May 24, 2016 and is dedicated to guiding students in the initial stages of starting a business—from creating a business plan, identifying market opportunities, and learning what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur.

The second series (B) begins August 30, 2016, and highlights topics for advancing existing businesses, and economics and sales growth, and offers mentorship opportunities. Learn more about the Veteran Business Seminar Series, and get business off the ground and flourishing.
