Bob Evans launches new grant program for veteran entrepreneurs

Bob Evans Farms is supporting veteran entrepreneurs with its new “Heroes to CEOs” grant program, offering “financial assistance to veterans or active-duty members with exceptional business ideas and a passion for entrepreneurship” The program will award a $25,000 business grant to 3 deserving veterans “who submit a video sharing their business idea and a plan demonstrating a solid business concept.”

The upcoming program was developed by Bob Evans Farms “in partnership with The Mission Continues, a non-profit veteran advocacy group, to support active-duty members and veterans, particularly those transitioning to civilian life. The initiative is the largest veterans-only grant program currently available for all veterans.”

As a constant supporter of veteran entrepreneurs, I think this is a fantastic endeavor and I hope that all of our readers take the time to share this information with as many people as they can.

To enter, veterans need to have a business plan and fill out an application at www.ourfarmsalutes.com. Applications will be reviewed until Aug. 8 and the winners will be announced Sept. 12.
