Intersection: Veteran Entrepreneurs, Space Coast Business, Hurricane Prep & Library Social Work

For veterans returning to civilian life- the transition can be a challenge. Back in December, UCF’s business incubation center launched a program to help veteran entrepreneurs hit the ground running.

From veteran entrepreneurs to the business of space- in Brevard County commercial space exploration is driving business development. Troy Post with the North Brevard Economic Development Zone explains what’s new on the space coast.

Hurricane season starts in a couple days. Just how prepared are you? Seminole County Emergency Manager Alan Harris is hoping for rain to ease the drought- just not too much of it. And he reveals the secrets of the best hurricane preparedness kit in the county.

And: check out a book, chat with a social worker? Orange County Public Libraries now has a social worker on staff. We chat with Dr. Stem Mahlatini about her work, and why the library is an ideal place for a social worker.
