$25K tech grants for veteran-owned businesses now taking applications

A Florida city and entrepreneurship education company are teaming up to offer $25,000 grants and an business boot camp to veteran-owned businesses looking to develop new web, mobile or technology products.

Miami-based Venture Hive and the city of Fort Walton Beach are taking applications for a 12-week “accelerator course” open to veterans starting large-scale and global market companies.

In addition to the $25,000 non-equity grant and course, those picked for the program will get access to collaborative work space in Fort Walton Beach for one year and exposure to potential investors, according to a press release. 

In addition, veterans or military spouses who owns businesses can apply for a “pre-accelerator” program for entrepreneurs in the earlier stages of developing businesses. The program is also 12 weeks but meets part time.

Applications for both programs are due June 1.​ Up to 10 companies will receive grants. For more information, go to http://veterans.venturehive.com/
