The EBV Family


"I realized that if a veteran didn't go to college as soon as he came back, he'd never have another chance. It was now or never. Now was not the time to shut the doors." - SU Chancellor Emeritus William Pearson Tolley1946



Entrepreneurship is the ultimate form of empowerment. It is the opportunity to create something from nothing - to be the owner of one's dreams. The Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans helps our men and woman of the armed forces gain the tools and knowledge to help those dreams become a reality.
