Greetings V-WISE Graduates!

On behalf of the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF), the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and Sam's Club, welcome to your one-stop shop for anything and everything "NatCon" (because let's be honest, "V-WISE National Graduate Training Conference" is too long to say five times fast)!

The goal of this conference is to empower our graduates with the training, development and networking opportunities you have voiced are valuable to you as you continue down your entrepreneurial path.  While this event will have the same feel and tone of the V-WISE you attended, we've ramped up your opportunities to learn, grow and connect with each other and a plethora of first class business support partners and business experts.  This website is just one of many tools we feel will aid in helping you have a tremendous V-WISE NatCon experience.  If at any point you have questions, comments or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us at vwise@syr.edu!
