Entrepreneur Bootcamp for Veterans (EBV) at Texas A&M
The Reynolds & Reynolds Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans (EBV) at Texas A&M is a novel, one-of-a-kind initiative designed to leverage the skills, resources and infrastructure of higher education to offer cutting-edge, 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 and their families by developing their competencies in creating and sustaining an entrepreneurial venture.
EBV is delivered through a three-phased approach, providing premier training and support:
PHASE 1—is a 30-day instructor led, online course focused on basic skills of entrepreneurship and the language of business. Phase I is hosted on junction65 in partnership with CNPP. This Phase must be completed in order to attend Phase 2 on campus.
PHASE 2—is a nine-day residency at an EBV university where students are exposed to over 30 accomplished entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship educators from across the U.S. The residency includes more than 80 hours of instruction in the “nuts and bolts” of business ownership. The residency is intense, and designed to both educate and motivate.
PHASE 3—involves 12 months of support and mentorship delivered through the EBV Technical Assistance Program (EBV-TAP), a robust, comprehensive network of mentors, resources and national partnerships.
Cost of the Program
Thanks to a generous endowment from Reynolds & Reynolds the Texas A&M University EBV program is provided completely free of charge to veteran participants. As a result of the generous support of the EBV universities and the private giving of individuals and corporations, we are able to cover all costs (including travel, lodging and meals) for our veteran entrepreneurs.
