St. Joe’s Veterans Entrepreneurial Jumpstart (VEJ) program is designed specifically to provide the tools, education and mentorship necessary to allow all qualified veterans the opportunity to start their own businesses. They offer the latest training in business and entrepreneurship, utilizing the breadth of experience available through the renowned Haub School of Business, experienced faculty, and industry practitioners.

Veterans are exposed to a broad training curriculum, including classroom discussions, guest lectures from successful entrepreneurs, and opportunities for experiential learning. One-on-one work with trained mentors enables veterans to further develop and refine their business plan and a venture pitch competition is used to assess all business plan submissions.

During Small Business Week this May, 44 Business Capital presented St. Joseph’s University Office of Veterans Affairs a check for $2,500 to further their mission of providing valuable entrepreneurial training to Veterans.

44 is proud to sponsor this program which helps to offset tuition costs for qualified vets, who are not charged for St. Joe’s Veterans Entrepreneurial Jumpstart program. 44 Business Capital remains committed to assisting Veterans in gaining access to the capital and training well deserved. As we always say at 44, we can risk a little more for those that risked it all.

If you are a Veteran or know a Vet who can benefit from this program, visit St. Joe’s VEJ program for more information.
