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.
EBV also serves a critical function in helping our disabled vets work through their physical limitations, psychological challenges, and social obstacles. EBV brings together a dedicated UConn community of faculty, staff, students, alumni, and others to rally around this special class of exceptional individuals.
Please join us in supporting our veterans who, after distinguishing themselves for our country, will soon be garnering accolades as entrepreneurial leaders in our communities!
