Warrior Rising is focused on YOU - the individual vetrepreneur. We start by helping veterans and their immediate family members identify their needs at a given stage in their business development. This means that you could have an idea on the back of a napkin, a desire to start a franchise or buy an existing business, or you already have a business and you are simply stuck. No matter what stage in the business lifecycle you are in, Warrior Rising is here to help you help yourself.

Warrior Rising is a one-stop shop for business. We provide education, training, coaching, mentorship, potential access to clients & investors, and funding opportunities. Above all, we provide you the opportunity to find your purpose again post-military service. We do this at absolutely no cost to the participant. In other words, everything we provide our veterans and immediate family members is FREE. We ensure that you are not walking the path to business alone or in the dark.


Step One: Warrior Academy®

Our proprietary instruction builds on your military training and experience. The Warrior Academy translates the military decision making process into a business model and helps you understand the mindset necessary to be an entrepreneur. The video modules and narratives are self-paced, with homework assignments to enforce the lesson learned. Your success depends on your commitment to taking the veteran organization's instruction seriously and staying with it to the end. The Warrior Academy is not an easy course... and that's intentional (but for your benefit!).

The first thing to do to get started is to complete the Enrollment Application by clicking the green "Apply" button below. Please be sure to provide all the information requested, completely and accurately. We need to be able to contact you (be sure your email is correct) and to verify your information, including identity, service, and so forth. Our application process is a low-barrier, seamless experience that can be completed in less than 15 minutes.


Step Two: Monthly Coaching and Master Class Sessions

To provide increased opportunities for business success, you’ll have access to monthly coaching and monthly Master Class sessions. The coaching sessions are live-virtual calls that are held on the first Wednesday of each month. During these sessions, our coaches are prepared to answer your business questions as well as any questions you have about the Warrior Academy or anything in our program (i.e. general open Q&A and customer service).

Our Master Class sessions are live virtual calls held on the third Wednesday of each month. Each mentoring session begins with a keynote speaker followed by breakout rooms with our mentors. Each individual breakout room has a specific business topic and is taught by a mentor who is an expert in that particular field, similar to an MBA class taught by professors.

Both the coaching and Master Class sessions run for 60 minutes and allow an opportunity to exchange LinkedIn or other contact information with others to continue the interaction. To participate in coaching and Master Class sessions, make sure you are enrolled in Warrior Academy (see Step One above!) so we are able to send you the notifications for those incredible speakers and topics.


Step Three: Warrior University™ - Veteran Business Accelerator Program

Once you complete the Warrior Academy, we give you immediate access to Warrior University, our advanced (or Master's) program, a Veteran Business Accelerator. You'll join a group of fellow qualified veterans and Active, Guard, and Reserve military who are either exploring entrepreneurship as a career path choice or already have active small businesses and want to learn more. The program is a eight-week virtual live online call that you can attend from anywhere. The sessions are also recorded, so if you are unable to attend the live calls, you will still be able to access the content on recorded video. Completion of both the Warrior Academy and the Warrior University advanced program are required to apply for a Business Shower.

To participate in Warrior University, make sure you are enrolled in Warrior Academy (see Step One above!)


Step Four: Veteran Business Shower

Similar to a bridal shower or a baby shower, a Business Shower is an opportunity for Warrior Rising and our partners to shower our vetrepreneurs with everything they could possibly need to succeed in business. This means that we provide grants, access to clients and investors, custom business suits, laptop computers, custom built websites, search engine optimization, headshots, and professionally created marketing videos. We also ensure that you leave the business shower with a one-on-one mentor to help you as you move forward with your business.

Here's the must earn this opportunity. You will be competing with recent Warrior Academy and Warrior University graduates for the opportunity to participate in a business shower.

To be eligible for a Business Shower:
1. You must have completed Warrior Academy and Warrior University (live or virtual).
2. Your business must be actively providing a product or service (i.e. you are past the "concept" stage and operating.
3. You must submit a pitch deck and a video of no more than 3 minutes in length "pitching" your business (as if to an investor, customer, or other supporter) and detailing who you are and why you deserve to be selected to participate in a business shower.


The Warrior Tribe continues!

Warrior Rising's support does not end with the Business Shower event. You are welcome to keep attending Coaching and Master Class sessions indefinitely! Also, a key component of continued success is the people you surround yourself with. Show me your network and I will show you your net worth.

Please follow, like and share our social media posts (Linkedin, Facebook, and Instagram), check out our newsletter for updates and additions to the program, and attend our in-person events throughout the country.
