Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans Families




The Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans’ Families (EBV-F) is an education and self-employment training program founded in 2010 and expanded to Florida State University in 2012. The EBV-F program is designed to take advantage of the skills, resources and infrastructure of higher education to offer cutting-edge, experiential training in entrepreneurship and small business management. The program leverages the flexibility inherent in small business ownership to provide a vocational path forward for military family members. EBV-F integrates training in entrepreneurship with caregiver and family issues, positioning participants to launch and grow a small business in a way that is complementary or enhancing to other family responsibilities.

Application & Schedule

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and processed and vetted by the Institute of Veteran and Military Families at Syracuse University. When enough applications have been received, a cohort will be assembled and program dates will be selected.

EBV-F is a selective, rigorous and intense educational initiative that has been created to make a difference. Accordingly, the application process itself is rigorous and selective. Successful candidates for admission will demonstrate a strong interest in entrepreneurship, high motivation for owning and managing a business, and a high likelihood of successful completion of this intense training program.
