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.
