Our Mentors

Mentors are the lynchpin of how we help veterans start or accelerate their business. They are experienced business people and often entrepreneurs themselves. Mentors work with the veterans 1-on-1 by reviewing their business plan, helping them with pitch decks, directing them towards filling any gaps they have in their plan, preparing their go-to-market strategy. Each mentoring session with a veteran follows a guided, thoughtful plan with the frequency mutually agreed upon by the mentor and the veteran, based on their needs.
