We don’t know what we don’t know.

What is that one thing that we don’t know, but if we did it would change everything. 

As Veterans we can often fall into the gap of not knowing the right path or resources to help through our transition.

Today we are talking with Dr. Mike Haynie.

Dr. Mike Haynie is Syracuse University’s Vice Chancellor for Strategic Initiatives and Innovation, and also the Barnes Professor of Entrepreneurship.

In 2011, Haynie founded Syracuse University’s Institute for Veterans & Military Families (IVMF), the nation’s first interdisciplinary institute created to inform and advance the policy, economic, and wellness concerns of the America’s veterans and families.

Today IVMF programs serve over 25,000 veterans annually, and the Institute is widely acknowledged as the nation’s leading academic voice related to issues impacting veterans and military-connected families. In 2013, Dr. Haynie’s efforts on behalf of veterans were the subject of a feature story by the CBS news magazine 60 Minutes, titled “Succeeding as Civilians.”

Topics Covered:

  • How to start running with an idea
