STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) - Veterans have a new partner in starting their own business.
Georgia Southern University's Business Innovation Group received a $250,000 grant to assist veterans who want to start a business. It's one of a handful nationally, and the only group in Georgia to earn the one-year grant.
They'll have two people to work with veterans in person and online to get started. They say it's great to be able to help those who've protected our country.
"This grant will allow us to provide them technical support, mentoring, advice, working with the Boots to Business program at military installations," said Dr. Dominique Halaby, College of Business Administration.
The grant takes effect July 1.
