A Unique Entrepreneurship Program for America's Heroes  



Veterans Entrepreneurship Program

Class of 2013


The Veterans Entrepreneurship Program (VEP) at UTC offers cutting edge, experiential training in entrepreneurship and small business management to our nations veterans. Like a military boot camp, this program is intense, rigorous, and challenging. The VEP consists of a series of training modules designed by UTC and successful entrepreneurs who will work with participating veterans to provide an interactive and informative experience.

Our Goals:

  • Open the door to entrepreneurial opportunity and small business ownership to veterans
  • Develop competencies in creating and sustaining an entrepreneurial venture
  • Provide a support structure for continued success as a business owner

The VEP program is offered entirely free to qualified veterans accepted into the program.


“The VEP is a must for any serious entrepreneur. Not only was the program effective in utilizing skills already gained in the military, its top flight level of professors and instructors were able to pull out of us new concepts and ideas that fundamentally shifted how we see the world and to change it for the better.”
