Governors State University recently received a $17,000 grant from The Coleman Foundation of Chicago. The grant will be used to support three Veterans Entrepreneurial Boot Camps hosted by CenterPoint.
Over the past three years, CenterPoint at Governors State has provided more than 400 veterans and active military personnel with the tools necessary to start their own businesses or improve their existing businesses. The Coleman Grant will allow CenterPoint to offer this event free of charge through 2012.
