STORRS, Conn. - The University of Connecticut's School of Business has been honored to be a member of the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV) consortium of business schools and universities since 2010.
UConn is grateful for the privilege of working with disabled veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. The goal is to provide these veterans with the education, skills, and contacts that will help make their passion for starting and owning their own businesses a reality.
The program is currently going on in both Storrs and Hartford and on Tuesday members of the program attended football practice and had dinner with the team. It is a chance for UConn's football student-athletes to hear the stories of these brave men and women and say thank you for their service to our country.
The UConn School of Business is proud to participate in this very special program that helps give back just a little to individuals who have sacrificed so much for our country. In addition, EBV demonstrates the power of entrepreneurship in our communities by fostering an essential route for job creation and economic vitality.
EBV also serves a critical function in helping our disabled vets work through their physical limitations, psychological challenges, and social obstacles. EBV brings together a dedicated UConn community of faculty, staff, students, alumni, and others to rally around this special class of exceptional individuals.
