Social Enterprises for Entrepreneurial Veterans in UK and US - NPQ - Nonprofit Quarterly: In the U.S., entities structured as nonprofits have been engaged in promoting and assisting entrepreneurship by veterans for some time. The most widely recognized group in this field is probably the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University. Among its celebrated programs are its Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans’ Families and Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities, offered not only at Syracuse, but at UCLA, Florida State, Texas A&M, Purdue, the University of Connecticut, LSU, and Cornell. EBV participants get access to technical assistance from the university faculties and from other EBV graduates.
