VET-1 paves the way for veteran business success

Celebrating the completion of the inaugural Veteran Entrepreneur Training (VET) program, we gathered at the historic Anzac Memorial in Sydney, on July 29.

Twenty-three participants were selected for the VET-1 program. The group was a mix of veterans, current serving members, and spouses from around Australia, including Perth, Townsville, Melbourne and Adelaide.

The online program culminated in a one day in-person residential in Sydney. Inspired by guest speakers Mick Carr, the force behind Grub Lub, and Eunika Kureck, IP Consult and Lawyer at Unilever, participants developed their 2-minute pitch for an opportunity to win $1,000 seed funding.

Panel of VIP guests gave honourable mentions to Adrian Sweatman, Jasmin Diab, Chris Ghalayini, and Julian Blok, before selecting Rikki Bradley as the Pitch Competition winner. Our congratulation to all of our participants for their commitment to the program and support for their veteran community.
