We are proud to announce that our client, Veterans' Healing Farm, was recently the recipient of a $35,000 prize from the Entrepreneurship Boot-camp for Veterans! The non-profit community farm from Hendersonville, North Carolina is designed to help veterans re-integrate themselves back into society by helping grow crops, raise animals and learn holistic health and sustainability skills that will assist with their future endeavors as they become strong contributors in their communities. It received the money for winning two awards at business plan competition held from October 24-26.
The Entrepreneurship Boot-camp for Veterans (EBV) funds educational programs and organizations like Veterans' Healing Farm based on the value of their proposed business plans. The Veterans' Healing Farm received $30,000 for winning first place in the best proposed business plan competition and an additional $5,000 for tying for the best plan designed to help veterans.
This money will go a long way towards helping Veterans' Healing Farm founders John and Nicole Mahshie grow their organization, and we couldn't be happier for them. The entrepreneurs are both graduates of past EBV programs and the formation of Veterans' Healing Farm shows their commitment to the EBV community. In a statement released via email, Veterans' Healing Farm thanked everyone who supported the organization and made this great event possible.
"We are very grateful for this tremendous opportunity provided by the EBV Foundation, Bob Woodruff Foundation, and the DAV," the email said. "Please continue to spread the word about VHF and encourage friends and family to visit the website and consider donating."
We are happy to see an organization we incorporated experience such great success. They have certainly showcased the benefits of incorporating and we are confident that they will continue to do great things in the future. So, on behalf of all of us at Corporations & Companies, congratulations!
