Niurka said the EBV played a critical role in helping her make that adjustment by providing actionable resources available for veterans that allowed her to gain the confidence in launching her new business.

Amor Umbrella was founded by Niurka Castaneda, inspired by a love for unique and beautiful umbrellas, umbrellas that not only make you look like a STAR, but that are also functional items that goes with any outfit and by a desire to provide an impactful solution to the damage caused to Mother Earth by the waste due to the sheer amount of broken umbrellas that ends everyday in the landfill.  Ignited by the entrepreneurial workshop V-WISE, hosted and run by IVMF, empowered by a Global Supply Chain Class and armed by Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans (EBV) also hosted and run by IVMF.
