A new boot camp-style entrepreneurship program at William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia is training veterans to start their own businesses, Military Times reported. “The military is great at teaching you to deal with setbacks and challenges but not really the actual specific skills like meeting with investors or incorporating a business,” one Army veteran who went through the program said. “They teach you how to do an interview, not how to raise capital. But through the program, I learned a lot of things that I needed to learn.”
