Veteran’s Core Compass

Veteran’s Core Compass is a free business expert mentoring program for U.S. military veteran-led small businesses – provided by successful business leaders to the next generation.

Who we are

Veteran’s Core Compass is a volunteer, free, expert mentoring program that focuses on the specific needs, challenges and opportunities of U.S. veteran-led small businesses.

Veteran’s Core Compass was founded by two Marine Corps veterans. It runs independently as a network of volunteers with only the interests of veterans kept in mind.

Veteran’s Core Compass Mentors are successful business leaders and senior professionals who are experienced in helping business venture leaders sort through their challenges and find successful paths forward.

What we do

From just getting a new venture off the ground, to growing it, or addressing a crisis along the way – we’ll pair you with a mentor who will provide free sage advice to help you reach your goals. Where the scope of what we provide isn’t enough, we’ll point you in the right direction for more specialized resources, many of which are optimized for veteran entrepreneurs.

There can be some adjustment moving from the structure of military environments to the far looser social communities where your business needs to thrive. Our mentors can help you work through that transition as well as help you position yourself for higher revenues and increased business growth.

Joining us as a volunteer

The willingness of America’s veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude.

For some of them, they are returning to civilian life with an entrepreneurial dream – to become part of the small business catalysts that have been an ongoing key for the growth of the U.S. economy.

Many of us have found that volunteering as a veteran business mentor has been one of the most rewarding endeavors in our careers. You don’t have to be a veteran yourself to serve as a mentor – you just have to be motivated to help a veteran entrepreneur.
