Posted in People

Business Librarian Jo Ann Henson is participating in the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disablities (EBV) program on campus this week. Jo Ann designed a webpage ( that highlights relevant LSU Libraries resources, and has presented a session for the vets. She is working with them at night this week to teach them how to use the resources. She will continue to help after they return to their homes.

According to the LSU Business School website, “the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV) offers cutting-edge, experiential training in entrepreneurship and small business management to soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines who were disabled as a result of their service supporting operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. The intent of the EBV is to open the door to entrepreneurial opportunity and small business ownership to these individuals by developing their competencies in the many steps and activities associated with creating and sustaining an entrepreneurial venture and also by helping them coordinate their efforts with programs and services for veterans and others with disabilities. ”

    This looks like a fantastic program, and Jo Ann is awesome.

  2. I am a Viet Nam veteran who would’ve greatly appreciated programs like this. I am very pleased to see how this nation is working together to provide assistance to our returning vets. I can think of no better way than to help them utilize their inherent talents to create their own businesses. Hats off, Jo Ann.

    I so admire what Jo Ann has done. We all need to do more for our veterans. How great it would be if this became a national program!
