The Edge Connection is committed to giving back to those who serve our country by providing veterans and active military with the knowledge and skills to become independent business owners. Veterans returning to civilian life face the daunting task of re-acclimating themselves to a vastly different environment. They often face an enormous adjustment in the civilian workplace. Traditional employment is not always an option. Entrepreneurship allows a veteran the ability to maintain a sense of power and to use his/her innate strengths, talents, and interests to become a financially independent business owner.
As part of a cooperative partnership with Kennesaw State University The Edge Connection facilitates Coles’s College of Business’ VET (Veteran’s Entrepreneurship Training) program, a division of their GAVE Initiative (Georgia Advancing Veteran’s Education). We are committed to promoting the advancement and success of our veteran’s by providing comprehensive training and resources to support their entrepreneurial effort as they build a plan for their business based on real-world benchmarks and achievable goals.
The Edge Connection is dedicated to the delivery of best practices in micro and small business development, including business plan development classes, workshops, consulting, on-site database access, financial education and planning, access to capital support, and other supplemental resources focused on business start-up, growth, expansion, and sustainability.
This program is 100% FREE to Veteran’s.
