The conventional wisdom is that veterans are more entrepreneurial than their non-military peers.
This makes a lot of sense from a qualities perspective. Veterans are accustomed to mission-oriented work environments that encourage risk and require careful management of personnel, capital, and resources; all required characteristics of a successful business owner. Once a business owner, veterans are also more likely to pay it forward by hiring, mentoring, and funding new ventures for fellow veterans.
Participants in the CUNY CareerPATH Entrepreneurship Program learn how to start-up and operate their own small business through an in-depth examination of the requirements, process and possible outcomes of starting a new business.
Do you know of someone who truly exemplifies entrepreneurship? An individual who went past dreaming to actually do, and opened up the corner shop that sells custom-colored bikes? Entrepreneurs like this are who we need to keep the city moving and develop products that better the community it serves. Nominate that individual for The Entrepreneur Award on.nyc.gov/NAA2013
