The Veterans2Ventures program at the University of Illinois at Chicago is designed to foster support for veterans returning to the greater Chicagoland area who aspire to be entrepreneurs. This tailored, sixteen week program provides knowledge and skills needed for identification, evaluation, and exploitation of entrepreneurial opportunities across a variety of industry sectors. 

Veterans2Ventures is designed to help participants understand what it means to be an entrepreneur, decide if and when they want to follow an entrepreneurial path, and equip them with the tools for entrepreneurial success.

UIC has a long history of serving veterans. The school was created in 1945 to meet the demand of returning soldiers looking to use the GI Bill to fulfill their dreams of higher education. Today, we embrace that history as we continue to advocate for veterans as they enroll and graduate from UIC. To learn more about campus services for veterans, visit the Office of Student Veterans Affairs.

UIC ranks among the nation’s leading research universities and is Chicago’s largest university with 27,500 students, 12,000 faculty and staff, 15 colleges and the state’s major public medical center. A hallmark of the campus is the Great Cities Commitment, through which UIC faculty, students and staff engage with community, corporate, foundation and government partners to improve the quality of life in metropolitan areas around the world.  For more information about UIC,  please visit
