Access to Capital Education
The Veteran Entrepreneur Investment Program (VEIP) provides veteran-owned companies the resources and network they need to access capital to build and grow their businesses. In 2020, we reached more than 3,400 veteran entrepreneurs. We do this through:
Education. Entrepreneurship training—webinars, workshops and bootcamps presenting topics that focus on accessing capital.
Preparation. The Master’s Program presented by SOSi prepares veteran-owned startups to raise investor funds to scale their companies and tackle the challenge of access to capital.
The PenFed Foundation for Military Heroes is a 501(c)3 nonprofit with a mission to empower military service members, veterans and their communities with the skills and resources to realize financial stability and opportunity. Since 2001, the PenFed Foundation has provided more than $38.5 million in financial support to more than 140,000 military families. Thanks to the generosity of the PenFed Credit Union which pays the majority of Foundation overhead, more than 95% of each donation goes directly to support our programs.
Our affiliation with PenFed Credit Union gives us the resources to reach military and veteran communities across the country. But we need your support to continue delivering our wide range of programs and services. Learn more about our programs and see how you can make a difference.
