The Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV) offers experiential training in entrepreneurship and small business management to soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines disabled as a result of their service to our country post-911. The program is one of the first significant partnerships since World War II among some of the top business schools in the country, focused specifically on assisting veterans interested in business ownership. The EBV program is offered free to qualified veterans accepted into the program.
The EBV integrates faculty, entrepreneurs, disability experts, and business professionals in an educational program focused on training our veterans in the competencies associated with small-business ownership. The program is conducted in three phases: a guided self-study session in which veterans complete courses through online discussions moderated by university faculty; a nine-day residency where veterans learn to develop their own business plans and understand the basic elements of small-business management; and a 12-month mentorship with faculty experts and entrepreneurs.
