Nearly two dozen service-disabled veterans from throughout the U.S. are set to begin the annual Entrepreneurship Bootcamp program next week from the Purdue University Krannert School of Management. The initiative involves online, on-campus and year-long mentorship components.
Ten business schools throughout the country participate in the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities program. Vets were selected for their passion for entrepreneurship and feasibility of their startup ideas. They will learn market analysis, supply chain management and financial skills from faculty members, entrepreneurs, disability experts and business professionals.
This year’s class at Krannert is set to begin October 30 and will include two new activities: startup guidance from the Purdue Research Foundation at the Purdue Foundry and a networking event through the MatchBox Coworking Studio and the City of Lafayette Mayor’s office.
Final student commercialization plans will be presented November 6.
