Kathryn Thomas, U.S. Navy veteran and owner of Yoga 4 Change, won 2nd place - $25,000 - and "Best Social Venture" at our VetSmallBiz Growth Challenge. Now, she shares her story in recognition of #WomensHistoryMonth.

Today the IVMF will join forces with the EMentor Program, powered by AcademyWomen, in an exciting partnership answering the call for mentoring alumni of our Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV), Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans' Families (EBV-F) and Veteran Women Igniting the Spirit of Entrepreneurship (V-WISE) programs. These graduates will be matched with seasoned veteran and civilian entrepreneurs through the award-winning, web-based eMentor Leadership Program. Members also get post-program support with access to discussion forums and other relevant resources for the best road to success.
