Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans celebrates 10 years

Civic Engagement

Chancellor Block joined a breakfast for participants in the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans.

Celebrating 10 years at UCLA, the national program provides U.S. military veterans with skills and training to start their own businesses.

The bootcamp is organized by the UCLA Anderson School of Management and the Price Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation. Pictured above with the Chancellor are Elaine Hagan (’91), Price Center executive director, and Alfred E. Osborne, Jr., Price Center faculty director.

Chancellor Block told participants the opportunity to cultivate their dream of entrepreneurship here at UCLA is consistent with his vision of what a public research university can do.

UCLA has long and proud history of supporting veterans through our unique relationship with the VA West Los Angeles. Just last year, Congress approved a deeper partnership between UCLA and the VA to add new and expanded services including mentorship programs, family support, mental health services and legal advocacy.
