Veteran Ventures


Supporting Veteran Entrepreneurs


Veteran Ventures

The Veteran Ventures program is a commitment to provide Veterans with entrepreneurial programs, resulting in greater confidence and increased skills as they transition into the civilian world. The program utilizes a “Veterans helping Veterans” approach, providing participants with inspiration, support and mentoring throughout the 10 week program. Veteran Ventures is open to teams with at least one Veteran who are UC San Diego undergraduate or graduate students or alumni.

Join the Program

Student and alumni veterans at UC San Diego and The Honor Foundation graduates are invited to participate in the Veteran Ventures program at UC San Diego. Meetings for the Fall 2017 program will occur on Wednesdays beginning on October 18th and running through the academic quarter.

If you are a veteran and:

  • Already have a business idea, and want to further develop that idea.
  • Want to collaborate and network with other veteran mentors and entrepreneurs.
  • Ready to scale up, raise capital, incorporate, go to market, or go IPO.

Then Veteran Ventures at UC San Diego is for you. Veteran Ventures is run by veterans for veterans.
