The annual Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities kicked off this past weekend with 18 veterans from around the country coming to UCLA Anderson for the weeklong residency program. Launched at Syracuse University’s Whitman School of Management, the program provides free entrepreneurship training to veterans with a service-connected disability.
With lectures running the gamut of entrepreneurialism, the program seeks to set veterans on the right path to business creation. From marketing and branding and public relations to human resources and legal issues, classroom lectures cover the gambit of possible issues participants will face in their new ventures.
The week ends with each veteran pitching their ideas, and receiving feedback and evaluation from a team of judges.
The program also includes a 30-day, pre-residency, online curriculum and12 months of ongoing support and mentorship from faculty experts and EBV resource providers.
