MVE-Lab offers Michigan veterans and their families a focused experience for developing and launching a new idea or business. It is entrepreneurship training in a cohort model, with mentoring and access to funding, presented by Grand Valley State University.

We know that many veterans prefer self/employment. Through rigorous and supportive entrepreneurship education, MVE-Lab helps you launch a new business in about 3 months.
