UW System’s Institute for Business and Entrepreneurship partners with WVCC 

The UW System’s Institute for Business and Entrepreneurship and the Wisconsin Veterans Chamber of Commerce (WVCC) announced their partnership to support the veteran and military community’s entrepreneurial endeavors. 

The partnership aims to foster a strong business ecosystem and create a comprehensive, inclusive support system for veterans and their families by supporting a statewide Veteran and Military Community Small Business Development Center (SBDC) consultant. 

Jonathan Klein has joined the Institute team as the Veteran and Military Community SBDC consultant. He will be working closely with both organizations to provide guidance, resources, and expertise to veteran and military community members and their families looking to explore entrepreneurship or grow their existing business. Klein comes to the Institute with eight years of small business ownership experience as well as five years serving in the U.S. Air Force. 

Veteran and military community members are encouraged to attend the Veterans Business Resource Fair, taking place in Brookfield on May 25 from 8:30 a.m.–12 p.m., for a chance to explore the resources available to veterans and military community entrepreneurs at the event. 

More information about the Veteran and Military Community SBDC Consultant program and the upcoming Veterans Business Resource Fair is available online.
