The Entrepreneurial Bootcamp for Veterans, or EBV, is a nationally recognized educational program to support business initiatives for veterans through experiential and small business management training. The University of Connecticut is proud to house these programs within the Stamford Learning Accelerator at the Stamford campus and at the Graduate Business Learning Center in Hartford, ably led by Michael Zacchea, a retired Lieutenant Colonel of the United States Marine Corps. EBV demonstrates the power of entrepreneurship in our communities by fostering an essential route for job creation and economic vitality.
EBV also serves a critical function in helping our disabled vets work through their physical limitations, psychological challenges, and social obstacles. EBV brings together a dedicated UConn community of faculty, staff, students, alumni, and others to rally around this special class of exceptional individuals.
