On Oct. 3 the 14 members of Cornell’s Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV) presented their business plans for the dreams they have of entering the civilian sector as entrepreneurs.

After eight days at Cornell learning from faculty at the School of Hotel Administration and other experts in their respective fields, our heroes displayed the fruits of their labor and demonstrated their capacity for success. The veterans completed a three-week online component and will now go on to launch their ventures with one year of access to all the resources the EBV Technical Assistance Program has at its disposal, all free of charge.

EBV has provided our nation’s post-9/11 veterans with service-related disabilities experiential training in entrepreneurship and small business management since its foundation by the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) at Syracuse University in 2007. Now at ten universities including Cornell, EBV according to its website continues to “open the door to economic opportunity for veterans” by helping them develop the skills necessary to create and sustain an entrepreneurial venture.
