The Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV) is a novel, one-of-a-kind initiative designed to leverage the skills, resources and infrastructure of higher education to offer cuttingedge, experiential training in entrepreneurship and small business management to post-9/11 veterans
with service-connected disabilities and a passion for entrepreneurship. The aim of the program is to open the door to economic opportunity for our veterans by developing their competencies in creating and sustaining an entrepreneurial venture. Cornell’s three-phase program welcomes veteran entrepreneurs who
