EBV Program: Celebrating 10 Years, 10 Universities in 2016

EBV_10yearsEBV celebrated a decade of “Turning Veterans into Entrepreneurs” 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 compiled 10 profiles on this page to highlight EBV graduate success stories.
