EBV-Families at SU Accepting Applications through Feb. 6
Applications are being accepted through Wednesday, Feb. 6, for the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans’ Families (EBV-F) program at Syracuse University, taking place March 8-15. Modeled after the national Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV), EBV-F is an education and training program that integrates training in small business management for military family members with caregiver and family issues. It positions the family member to launch and grow a small business in a way that is complementary or enhancing to other family responsibilities.
The EBV-F is operated by SU’s Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF). The program is open to military family members now supporting a wounded warrior, surviving spouses of a military member who gave his/her life in service to the nation and spouses of active duty military. It is offered at no cost to accepted applicants.
Through three phases, EBV-F addresses topics of business concepts and plans, available resources, marketing strategies and money management:
- Phase I is a 30-day, online training in which participants learn the language of entrepreneurship, and work toward understanding the fundamentals of business ownership in the context of their own business concepts;
- Phase II is a nine-day entrepreneurship immersion experience at Syracuse University where participants are exposed to the “nuts and bolts” of business ownership through hands-on training in entrepreneurship and small business, experiential workshops and lessons from world-class entrepreneurship faculty and successful entrepreneurs; and
- Phase III provides ongoing support and technical assistance from faculty experts, experienced entrepreneurs, resource partners and others through the EBV-Technical Assistance Program (EBV-TAP), helping program graduates realize their entrepreneurial goals.
