EBV, V-WISE and Operation Endure and Grow veterans programs garner media attention from outlets across the country


Fortune mentioned the $1 million donation from Walmart to the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (founded at the Whitman School and operated by SU's Institute for Veterans and Military Families)  for efforts of job creation and preparation for veterans.

The Sacramento Bee, Marketwatch, the Salt Lake Tribune and  the American Forces Press Service reported on the expansion of the EBV program  to the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration. The stories also reported on U.S. Small Business Administration programs focused on encouraging  vets to grow and expand small businesses. Mike Haynie, executive director of the IVMF and Barnes Professor of Entrepreneurship in the Whitman School, is quoted.

In addition, the IVMF-operated and Whitman-founded programs EBV, V-WISE and Operation Endure & Grow were mentioned in a Federal News Radio report on a Department of Defense push for new opportunities for service members and wounded veterans who are now returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan to receive business training.
