Both counselors at the SBDC at Wright State University are veterans and take pride in focusing on the veteran community by helping veterans learn about entrepreneurial opportunities. We also assist veterans by providing resources and contact information for employment options and other veteran related services. Below are a list of services and contacts we think veterans will find useful:
