FORT HOOD (March 18, 2013)--A recruiter will be at Fort Hood Thursday to provide disabled veterans and their spouses the tools to start up a small business.
The Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV) was featured on CBS’s 60 Minutes a few years back and aims to help disabled veterans "win the battle of economic freedom."
Born at Syracuse University’s Whitman School of Management in 2007, the program integrates faculty, entrepreneurs, disability experts and business professionals in an educational program to equip and train veterans in the competencies associated with small business ownership.
Accepted applicants will first participate in a self-study curriculum online and then will spend nine days at one of eight EBV Universities attending classes and workshops.
Transportation, lodging and food are provided.
Applicants cannot have been injured in the line of duty before September 11, 2001 to be accepted into the program.
Program Manager Jared Lyon will be at Fort Hood recruiting veterans for the program Thursday.
Applications are on a first-come, first served basis.
For more information, call Jared Lyons at (315) 443-6007.
