We are the platform for service members of all branches, both past and present who are exploring business ownership. The organization's mission is to successfully transition military members, veterans and their families through the provisions of entrepreneurial education and business development services.
A LETTER AND WELCOME FROM THE FOUNDER
Dear Prospective Sponsors and Partners,
Each month, more service members leave the military, join the civilian world and transitioning can be a daunting task for them. Prior the time a veteran is discharged, they are preparing and planning for transition; a priority that shifts to securing a new permanent living situation, and securing employment - employment being the glue that binds the transition process. Unfortunately, many veterans have a difficult time finding employment after exiting the military; to this end, some are looking for an opportunity to start their own business or be a franchise owner.
Our goal at Support Warrior Project (SWP) is to help them start a second career successfully from the military life to a business owner (Project Management). We are more than just a “resource”, we are a group of veterans who understand the barrier of starting a business, which goes beyond just military life and combat.
Our business model is based upon the premise that Americans will always support a veteran owned business. In an effort to help veterans, active service members of all branch and their families with sound, seamless transition and business opportunities, SWP was built to assist Veterans in launching new or existing business ventures by providing legal & business credit. We are veteran owned company with a mission to help veteran owned businesses to start or grow financially.
We’re looking for motivated, dedicated sponsors or partners who share our dream and understand the concept of service, sacrifice and I’m taking this opportunity to invite you to make a tangible and significant difference for veterans of all eras – to sponsor SWP 2018 Veterans business goals. Veterans are a unique addition to any growth environment as they not only satisfy diversity recruitment goals, but arrive with phenomenal leadership skills, are seasoned followers, team players, and have a wealth of proven technical, social and personal balance skills. Support Warrior Project is dedicated to leveraging and supporting these skills to strengthening their families and community networks. We operate our business according to values and principles that we feel are essential to success.
Remember, business ownership is more than just being an entrepreneur! It’s networking, connecting, educating yourself, and most importantly, it’s not doing it alone. Like you, we know the feeling.
A team to serve you
Leadership, passion, tenacity, perseverance, and resiliency are the characteristics of successful entrepreneurs. We ensure you're able to put them to use when building your business.
With the ongoing global war on terror, Veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan returned home to a shaky economy, with those who served our country facing much worse unemployment rates than the general population due to the difficulty of transitioning into civilian life. As that economy takes a turn toward prosperity, Support Warrior Project was incorporated in 2015 and founded by a handful of active duty military members who wanted to works towards the welfare and benefit of business life for uniformed services of all branches members - including active components, Reserves, National Guard, and all retirees; We aim to provide both and long-term business support nationwide.
We support America's service members, veterans, military spouses and transitioning members from uniform service to civilian life. Our focus is you, your story, and your determination to make a change, and serve you as you did for our nation by providing the business resource to launch your business and help you succeed.
Our Core Values
At Support Warrior Project, one of our core values is ethical conduct and our assorted services are all tied together to all military service members, veterans, and military spouses for today, tomorrow, and years to come by our strong culture and core values:
