Support EBV

Support EBV

You can become part of this important effort to support our country’s veterans and to improve the nation’s business climate. Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration and the Culinary Institute of America have joined with other schools in the EBV network to offer a rigorous program designed to help our twenty-first century veterans develop and succeed in their own businesses. At Cornell, we focus specifically on hospitality-related businesses, particularly food and beverage concepts.

Because these veterans have already contributed so much, we make this program free of all cost to the participants. Our faculty donate their time, and the school donates the facilities, but we need additional support for such expenses as participant travel and books, as well as the veterans’ lodging and meals during their intensive week-long campus session. Because our veterans are focused and organized, they are primed for success through the EBV program. Nine out of ten who launched their venture are still in business, and EBV graduates now employ more than 1,400 people. Learn more.
