At the Whitman School of Management, we’re launching a new program which will help the caregivers of wounded military veterans or surviving spouses of folks who gave their life in the service of our country... and who want to start their own business. Here’s the official word on the program:
The Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans’ Families (EBV-F) is an education and training program offered by the Falcone Center for Entrepreneurship at the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University. 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. The Whitman School of Management will launch the first EBV-F program in November of 2010. Applications will be accepted beginning in April of 2010.
