Description

Syracuse University and the Institute for Veterans and Military Families hosted a class of post-9/11 veterans for the eighth-annual Barnes Family Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV) program. The program, offered at no cost to participants, leverages the resources and infrastructure of higher education and specifically of the world-class faculty of the Whitman School of Management’s entrepreneurship programs, to provide veterans with service-connected disabilities with the cutting-edge training in entrepreneurship and small-business management necessary to pursue their dreams of owning a business. The Syracuse University EBV class of 2014 included 29 highly accomplished veterans, the largest class hosted by the university since the program’s inception in 2007. More about EBV: Who better to live the american dream than those who served to protect it? The Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV) is operated by the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University. The EBV program offers cutting edge, experiential training in entrepreneurship and small business management to post-9/11 veterans with disabilities resulting from their service to our country. The EBV is designed to open the door to business ownership for our veterans by 1) developing your skills in the many steps and activities associated with launching and growing a small business, and by 2) helping you leverage programs and services for veterans and people with disabilities in a way that furthers your entrepreneurial dreams. Through work in policy, programming and research, the IVMF is dedicated to serving our nation's veterans, and seeks to address the social, economic and public policy challenges faced by the veteran community.
