Ipswich, MA -- January 3, 2017. VFW Post 1093 and VetToCEO.org announced today that EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) will be the lead sponsor for the upcoming Vetrepreneurship Training Program. EBSCO's sponsorship will fund the start-up cash awards which will be awarded to the top three business plans.
EBSCO, based in Ipswich, provides quality research content, powerful search technologies and intuitive delivery platforms to institutions around the world. EBSCO is a division of EBSCO Industries, Inc. and is well-known on the North Shore as an anchor member of the community and a rapidly growing employer that has created its own MBTA "reverse commute" of tech workers who live in Boston and commute to the North Shore.
EBSCO Industries President and CEO Tim Collins commented, "EBSCO Information Services is an entrepreneurial company at heart. It started with a handful of employees and is now a global organization with more than 3,500 employees in more than 30 countries. One of the keys to our growth has been our ability to attract top talent from the greater Boston area and nationally. We offer employees a creative environment in which to thrive so it is a great fit for us to support an Ipswich initiative and the more than 45,000 veterans on the North Shore. This vetrepreneurship training program is in keeping with the spirit of entrepreneurship on which the company was founded and which continues to drive our success."
Ed Marsh, Commander of Post 1093 said, "This sponsorship is especially important because it will allow us to offer amazing quick start grants to the top three business plans from our spring session. Vetrepreneurs have the skills, we're providing the business training, and through the EBSCO awards we'll provide seed money to help these vetrepreneurs launch businesses that will create jobs in the community."
