Recognizing the importance of providing mentoring and support to early-stage start-ups founded by United States military veterans, and with a commitment to veteran-owned enterprises, Barclays and NYU Tandon School of Engineering launched the Veterans Future Lab.
The innovative business incubator, supported by the New York State Regional Economic Development Councils (REDC), offers the critical resources that help facilitate veterans’ success in the New York business ecosystem. The program also provides access to NYU Tandon's bootcamp, “A Bridge to Tandon," and the opportunity to work toward a Master of Science degree in one of three fields at no cost.
In addition to receiving financial support, veterans in the program can leverage the skills and expertise of Barclays’ senior leaders. Barclays will play a crucial role for veteran cohorts, both with mentorship and by serving as guest lecturers who will share their business and financial experience as it relates to scaling new businesses.
