The Community Navigator Pilot Program (CNPP), funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration, can provide you with the programs and resources you need to recover, grow, or start your business. The McFerrin Center for Entrepreneurship has joined Syracuse University’s D’Aniello Institute for Veterans and Military Families’ (IVMF) CNPP Partner Network to provide free services to the military and veteran community.

About the CNPP Partner Network 

IVMF’s CNPP Partner Network consists of national and regional partner organizations experienced in helping veteran and military-connected entrepreneurs thrive. The network provides free resources and support to entrepreneurs in five key areas: 

  • Business training and counseling

As a member of IVMF’s CNPP Partner Network, we’re ready to help you navigate the path to success. The McFerrin Center for Entrepreneurship offers a variety of opportunities and programs for veterans to connect with resources and the Aggie entrepreneurial network.
