JPMorgan Chase & Co. is connecting with Combined Arms to support veteran owned businesses by offering a 14 week “program to coach, incubate and accelerate veteran-owned businesses.” In order to build and maintain this effort, JPMorgan is committing $100,000 to the project.
Combined Arms is a Houston based organization that supports military veterans returning home. The organization is partnering with Bunker Labs a premier operation that supports veteran entrepreneurs. ” Bunker Labs provides educational programming, access to resources and networking opportunities to help military veterans start and grow their businesses.”
According to Chron, “roughly 3,000 military veterans move to Houston each year, making it the second-largest city for veterans to start, manage and grow small businesses.” This new program is looking to help many of them transition into business owners.
