Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities

EBV

In 2010, the University of Connecticut’s School of Business was honored to become a member of the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV) consortium of business schools and universities. We are grateful for the privilege of working with our inaugural class of between 15 and 20 disabled veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Our goal is to provide these veterans with the education, skills, and contacts that will help make their passion for starting and owning their own businesses a reality.

The School of Business is proud to participate in this very special program that helps give back just a little to individuals who have sacrificed so much for our country. In addition, EBV demonstrates the power of entrepreneurship in our communities by fostering an essential route for job creation and economic vitality.
