SERKET Racing Donates to EBV

September 3rd, 2013

SERKET Racing is donating $6,250 to the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans (EBV) to assist disabled veterans in receiving education on how to start and grow their own business.

The EBV offers cutting edge, firsthand training in entrepreneurship and small business management to post-9/11 soldiers, sailors, aviators, and marines with disabilities resulting from their service to our country. Offered by a network of world-class university business schools across the U.S. including Syracuse University, Texas A&M University, Florida State University, UCLA, Purdue University, the University of Connecticut, Louisiana State University and Cornell University, the logic behind the program is to leverage the academic expertise within business schools to serve those men and women who have served and sacrificed for our country, without any cost whatsoever to the veteran.

“We have been working with the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities quite some time now,” Llano said. “The work the EBV does, teaching our Veterans about entrepreneurship, and helping them achieve the American dream is beyond inspiring.

“Being a ‘Vetreprenuer’ myself, I have experienced firsthand the challenges these men and women face when they return home and I salute anyone who is dedicated to giving them the tools to succeed. The EBV’s goals of education and entrepreneurship for our Veterans are in line with SERKET Racing’s mission and we are glad to have them on board as a philanthropic partner.”

“Dr. Randy Blass and I are both excited and gracious that Mark Llano and SERKET Racing continue to support of the EBV program at Florida State University,” Ashley Edwards EBV Program Coordinator said. “This program would not be possible without friends like them.”
