Today, we are thrilled to announce a new partner and supporter: UBS Americas.
Over the next three years, UBS will invest $1.2 Million to support two core VFA program areas: education and training.
In addition to becoming the primary supporter of the Venture for America Fellow Training Camp at Brown University over the next three years, UBS will give VFA access to its resources and expertise.
In the press release from UBS, CEO Bob McCann spoke about their newest partnerships, which also includes a $100,000 commitment to American Corporate Partners, a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting veterans in their transition from the armed services to the civilian workforce.
“Our announcement today underscores UBS Americas’ vision of creating a stronger America where everyone has the opportunity to fulfill their potential and achieve financial independence,” said McCann. “Venture for America and American Corporate Partners have clear mandates to take actionable steps at the very heart of what it will take to get the American economy going again – with two important bastions of our future: the next generation of entrepreneurs and our veterans. That makes them the ideal partners for our mission.”
We could not be more excited to be working with UBS as part of their Revitalizing America initiative.
