About the StreetShares Foundation
The StreetShares Foundation was launched on Veterans Day, 2016, with the goal of educating, inspiring, and supporting veteran business owners across America. The Foundation is run by veterans and is based just outside of our nation's capital.
"Research shows military veterans give back to their communities in powerful ways. But studies also show this special breed of entrepreneurs need coaching and better mentor networks," said StreetShares Foundation Board Member, Mark L. Rockefeller. "Our partnership with Sam Adams Brewing the American Dream addresses these needs head-on. Together, we'll provide community-impact veteran business owners with free coaching, mentoring, and grants to put their dreams in motion."
