Learn About How I Gave 30K to a Veteran Entrepreneur

If you’ve been following me on social media this week, then you know that I teamed up with Bob Evans Farms for their Heroes to CEOs Grant Contest in support of veteran entrepreneurs across the US.

Out of hundreds of applicants, 3 Veteran entrepreneur finalists were chosen and flown out to New York City to pitch their businesses to a panel of judges for the chance to win a $30,000 business grant.

Prior to their presentation, I had the honor of meeting with each finalist to help them prepare and refine their pitch. And let me tell you, these entrepreneurs are amazing. They have taken every skill they learned throughout their years of military service and created game-changing businesses.

Today, we finally get to see how it all turned out and who won $30,000 towards their business.

Meet the 3 Veteran Finalists:


Our first finalist, Living Tiny, designs and builds luxury, quality, small homes helping to improve lives by supporting economic freedom, intentional living, and sustainability.

Get to know our second finalist, the veteran-owned company Peak Safety Systems. Peak Safety Systems creates safety products for our military and first responders.

Biao Skincare, our third finalist, is a skincare company that leverages artificial intelligence technology to target the damaging effects that life stressors and environmental aggressors have on the skin.

It was an honor to work with these great Veteran Entrepreneurs and I am pleased to announce the 2019 Hero to CEO winner, Peak Safety Systems.

Congratulations and best of luck to Peak Safety Systems!
