Last year we celebrated 10 years of Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV) at Syracuse University's Martin J. Whitman School of Management. Today, we welcome nearly 30 veterans to the SU campus to take part in our 11th annual EBV! Stay tuned for continuous updates by following along on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with @EBVprogram and #EBVSU!

"I think the single simple message I'd ask folks to think about is every single day we're all given opportunities ... we just slow down and just help somebody." - Colonel Usery

"According to that same VetAdvisor and Syracuse (IVMF) report, the top reasons veterans report for departing their first jobs include lack of career development/advancement, work that lacks meaning, limited professional development opportunities, or unfamiliar work culture."

"...a study conducted by the Institute for Veterans and Military Families, 44 percent of veterans left their first post-military jobs within a year. That translates into a lack of meaningful employment for the employee and high turnover costs for the employer. There are, in fact, strong economic benefits to hiring veterans and, as a nation, we can and should do better by these men and women."

“When I became a military spouse, I realized that military spouses also needed opportunities to work from home because of the lifestyle the military presented,” Mrs. Rodewald said. “A friend of mine (company co-owner Erica McMannes, Virginia) came to me with the idea of creating a job site where we could post virtual-type work opportunities and help create those opportunities for the military spouse community. I was on board from the beginning with it because I had so much more success doing it myself.” (Watertown Daily Times)

Check out how MadSkills connects military spouses with top employers in the article below or by visiting hiremadskills.com. Both Liza and Erica are graduates of our Veteran Women Igniting the Spirit of Entrepreneurship (V-WISE) program and are supporters of our Onward 2 Opportunity - Veterans Career Transition Program. Congratulations to the #MadSkills team!
