On June 28th, the Action Zone team welcomed friends old and new to celebrate the organization's launch and award of the Veterans Florida entrepreneurship program grant. In the first year that Veterans Florida was able to open proposals to any company, Action Zone became the first non-profit organization not connected to a Florida university or college to be awarded the grant.
Action Zone serves the Tampa Bay and surrounding areas providing entrepreneurship training and skill building for aspiring entrepreneurs who are Veterans, Reservists, National Guard, military spouses and dependents. Soon to open an office in Ybor City, Action Zone is will hold informational meet and greets to begin registering Veterans interested in the Veterans Florida Entrepreneurship Program (VFEP). Workshops and entrepreneurship courses will be announced after the VFEP begins in late August.
