MEDIA ADVISORY: Mizzou joins national consortium of world-class schools offering entrepreneurship and small business management training to post 9/11 veterans
WHAT: The Trulaske College of Business will host its first class of veterans with an interest in entrepreneurship and a business idea to get off the ground. The EBV Program is a 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 related disabilities. The aim of the program is to open the door to economic opportunity to veterans and their families by developing their competencies in creating and sustaining an entrepreneurial venture.
Mizzou’s program is launched with the generous support of the employees of Veterans United Home Loans through the Veterans United Foundation. The EBV is offered through a national consortium of world-class schools, founded at the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University. More on Mizzou’s program launch.
