WithYouWithMe, the military talent incubator helping veterans get employed, has announced a partnership with Fishburners to help bring veteran business ideas to life.
WithYouWithMe is establishing the first Veteran Start-Up Pathway – a program to assist veterans with a great business idea make their dream a reality. Veterans will submit their business ideas, with a number chosen to undertake the program free of charge.
The program will culminate in a veteran pitch event, hosted by Fishburners, where the veterans will have the opportunity to pitch their idea to investors and industry leaders, with the best idea winning a free starting membership to Fishburners.
Tom Moore, WithYouWithMe founder and CEO said: “I know from personal experience how difficult it is turning a business idea into a fully-fledged company. However, we’ve seen a number of veterans set up successful companies through sheer drive and tenacity to make their dream a reality.
“This program will make that process a little bit simpler by offering real tangible advice about how to establish and scale a business. Many of the skills learnt in the military set up veterans perfectly to be successful business owners, and the pathway program will offer the additional support required to take them to the next level,” Mr Moore said.
