Military veterans will get state help to start their own businesses, or improve their current operations. Six organizations will share 400-thousand dollars in state grants to provide entrepreneurship training and other business and technical assistance for those who’ve served. State Veterans Affairs Secretary Dan Zimmerman says vets already have many of the “essential skills and intangibles that make a good business owner.” Bunker Labs of Madison is getting the largest state grant — 238-thousand dollars to train veteran business owners in its Innovator Academy. The Fox Valley Technical College Foundation was also funded, as well as Legal Action of Wisconsin, Michaelangelo’s Workshop of Middleton, Project Echelon of Waukesha, and the U-W Milwaukee Upward Bound program for veterans.
