The Reynolds and Reynolds Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans (EBV) program supports the success of military veterans who are aspiring entrepreneurs.

The EBV at Wright State is part of a larger consortium of higher education institutions, initiated by the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University. The consortium is comprised of universities across the U.S., including Texas A&M, UCLA, the University of Connecticut, Louisiana State University, Florida State University, Saint Joseph’s University and the University of Missouri.

The full program is taught by entrepreneurs, professionals and faculty in Wright State University’s Raj Soin College of Business who support small business development.

Program Phases

Phase I

Veterans admitted to the EBV will begin their educational journey with a 30-day online course on entrepreneurship fundamentals.

Phase II

Students participate in an eight-day residential experience—including travel, food, accommodations, curriculum, resources and entertainment at no cost to the veteran—at Wright State.

Next Cohort Residency: August 10-17, 2024

Phase III

Upon completion of the residency graduates will have 12 months of ongoing support, focused on small business creation and growth.

How to Apply

Post-9/11 veterans with honorable discharge are eligible to apply for the program. There is no requirement that applicants be enrolled as a student.

The consortium uses one application which is managed by Syracuse University.
