As part of their on-going charitable program, Our Farm Salutes, Bob Evans Farms, Inc. released a public service announcement featuring world-renowned businessman and investor, Daymond John, urging the public to help military entrepreneurs transition from active duty to the boardroom and pursue their dream of starting their own business by supporting Bunker Labs, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, this Veterans Day.
The PSA spreads a powerful message as it encourages people to support the men and women who have served our country. The ‘Heroes to CEOs’ program has made a big difference for veteran entrepreneurs with Daymond John’s mentorship having a major impact on military entrepreneurs. Support from organizations like Bunker Labs also helps pave the way for their success with its networks and resources.
In February 2019, Bob Evans Farms held its ‘Heroes to CEOs’ program for the third year, where it selected three veteran-owned businesses to attend a pitching event in April 2019. Each finalist received an all-expense paid trip to New York City and a personalized 45-minute prep session with Daymond John to refine their pitch in an effort to win a $30,000 business grant. Jonathan Norton, former Army Ranger and founder and CEO of Peak Safety Systems, was deemed the winner. Bob Evans Farms will continue the program for the fourth year in 2020.
