Monday, June 27, 2016
Four veterans who graduated in 2015 from Purdue's Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities, or EBV, have received grants from the EBV Foundation to support their business projects. Purdue is one of 10 schools nationally to offer the EBV program. It offers experiential training in entrepreneurship and small business management to post-9/11 soldiers, sailors, aviators and Marines with disabilities resulting from their military service.
Receiving grants are:
* Jason Lipscomb, an Army veteran from Fort Wayne, Indiana, for a talent-development consulting service.
* Sean Holmgren, an Army veteran from Elgin, Oklahoma, for a mobile body shop.
* DeAndre Wells, a Marine Corps veteran from Baltimore, Maryland, for a spin fitness studio.
* Eric Glocker, a Marine Corps veteran from Colorado Springs, Colorado, for a firearms and training operation.
Purdue's on-campus residency in 2016 will begin on Oct. 21. Interested veterans may apply at http://www.krannert.purdue.edu/military/ebv/home.php
