The Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans model was first created at Syracuse University in 2007 and has since expanded to become the EBV Consortium. Today, prestigious member universities include Texas A&M, Purdue University, UCLA, the University of Connecticut, Louisiana State University, Florida State University, Cornell University, St. Joseph’s University and the University of Misosuri.
This important program is privately funded and will be offered at no cost to participants. The EBV program represents a 14-month intervention and consists of three phases of training and support.
PHASE 1 begins with a 30-day, online course focused on the basic skills of entrepreneurship and the ‘language of business.’
PHASE 2 of the program is a 9-day residency at an EBV University, where the veterans are exposed to some of the most accomplished entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship educators from across the U.S. The residency includes more than 80 hours of instruction.
PHASE 3 of the program involves 12 months of support and mentorship, delivered through a robust, comprehensive network of mentors and national partnerships.
