Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans’ Families (EBV-F)
2016 EBV-F at FSU
Online Dates: Jan. 23 - Feb 17, 2017
Residency Dates: Feb. 23 - March 3, 2017
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.
EBV-F applications will be accepted from first-degree family members of veterans with a service-connected disability, as designated by the Veterans Administration, who served on active duty after September 2001.
Costs and Logistics
This program is entirely free to the accepted applicants. As a result of the generous support of the EBV-F Universities and the private giving of individuals and corporations, all costs, including travel, lodging and meals for delegates accepted to the EBV-F, are covered.
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.
Applications are now being accepted
*Applications for the EBV-F program are collected by Syracuse University. You are not guaranteed a spot in the EBV-F program at FSU, and may be accepted at another of the consortium universities.
