The Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV) is an educational program that offers cutting-edge training in entrepreneurship and small business management to post-9/11 military veterans disabled as a result of their service to our country. The intent of the EBV is to open the door to entrepreneurship and small business ownership to our veterans, by developing competencies in accounting, human resources, marketing, advertising, financing, small business law, government contracts, and business planning.
The EBV program is offered through a national partnership of exceptional universities: the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University, UCLA Anderson School of Management, Florida State University's College of Business, Mays Business School at Texas A&M, and the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University. Each of these world-class business schools will offer the EBV program on their campuses in 2009.
Applications are accepted from veterans that meet the following criteria: 1) a 'service-connected disability' as designated by the Veterans Administration or Department of Defense, 2) military service after September 2001, and 3) a passion for entrepreneurship.
Cost & Logistics
This program is entirely without cost to the veteran, including travel, lodging, meals, and all program costs.
Successful candidates for admission will demonstrate a strong interest in entrepreneurship, high motivation for owning and managing a business, and a high likelihood of successful completion of this intense training program.
