Greetings,

We need your help. My name is Synclair Henry and I am emailing to inform you about the Disabled Veterans Entrepreneurship Program, offered annually here at the University of Florida.

The Veteran Entrepreneurship Program, with all costs covered for the veteran, is a rigorous entrepreneurial learning and development opportunity for service disabled veterans and those who have uniquely distinguished themselves in the military. VEP is designed for veterans interested in starting a new venture as a means to financial independence and for veterans who have an existing business which they would like to grow. The VEP is comprised of three phases: a five-week self-study component, an intense eight-day training program at the University of Florida, and an eight-month mentorship period with online peer-to-peer networking. This three phase program offers an innovative and effective combination of focused, practical training in venture creation and growth, as well as a support structure for graduates of the program.

For the upcoming 2016 VEP Program, applications are now being accepted.  The deadline is February 29th, but we make acceptance decisions as applications come in.  The eight day boot camp will take place from May 7th– 14th, 2016 (again, we cover all travel and accommodations costs).

What we are asking of you is to point us in the direction of deserving veterans that are excited about starting or growing a small business. I have an online brochure with more detail that you can feel free to disseminate. More information can be found on:

If you could provide your mailing address so that we may ship you our marketing pamphlets, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time, and we hope to hear from you soon!

Best Regards,
