Wisconsin Veterans Receive Free Business Training

By  | 

The state Department of Veterans Affairs is offering free classes to vets who want to start their own businesses.

The FastTrac New Venture program is a nine-week course that teaches everything about starting a new business.

About 50 Wisconsin vets have graduated from the program, which started in 2003.

Department training supervisor Joe Bertalan says those vets have opened I-T companies, marketing firms and home inspection businesses.

The next FastTrac course begins March ninth at the Tomah Veterans Medical Center.
