Wisconsin Veterans Chamber operating accelerator for military entrepreneurs at Ward 4

"The Milwaukee-based chamber launched Command Post, an accelerator for veteran-owned business owners, in 2018 and is actively looking to fill spots for the second cohort. Only 10 spots are available and five are still open, said Curtis Schmitt, membership director for the chamber.

Through the accelerator, which is the only business accelerator program in Wisconsin exclusively dedicated to serving veteran-owned businesses, Schmitt said, veteran entrepreneurs receive one year of free membership to Ward 4, a co-working lab located at 313 N. Plankinton Ave. They also receive mentorship, business coaching, and access to educational programming to scale their business and can attend exclusive networking and educational events hosted by the Veterans Chamber of Commerce at no cost."
