Business Startup Program for Military Families

The Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans’ Families (EBV-F) is an education and training program offered by the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University and the Florida State University College of Business. The program leverages the flexibility inherent in small business ownership to provide a vocational and economic “path-forward” for military family members who are now caregivers to a wounded warrior – or for the surviving spouse of a military member who gave his or her life in service to our country.

The EBV-F program integrates training in small business management, with caregiver and family issues, positioning the family member to launch and grow a small business in a way that is complementary or enhancing to other family responsibilities. Modeled after the existing Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV) initiative, the EBV Families program will be offered without any cost to accepted applicants.

Applications are being accepted now.

EBV-F Syracuse University: November 13-20, 2011
EBV-F Florida State University: February 22-March 1, 2012
