EBV Program: Celebrating 10 Years, 10 Universities in 2016
Join us in recognizing a decade of “Turning Veterans into Entrepreneurs” as the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV) program celebrates its 10-year anniversary in 2016.
Founded in 2007 by the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University, the EBV has expanded to a consortium of ten world-class universities across the nation: Cornell University, the University of Connecticut, Florida State University, Louisiana State University, University of Missouri, Purdue University, Saint Joseph’s University, Syracuse University, Texas A&M, and UCLA.
EBV has produced more than 1,300 graduates, with 68 percent having launched a new business venture after completing the EBV program. “The Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) and our public and private partners are honored to deliver the EBV program to our nation’s veterans, and play a role in further advancing the American dream of business ownership,” stresses IVMF Executive Director Dr. Mike Haynie.
In celebration of 10 Years of EBV, we will be posting 10 profiles to this page in the coming months to highlight EBV graduate success stories.
