No Vet Left Behind
Enabled Enterprise believes that for it to be successful it must provide our veterans with the tools necessary for their success. In furtherance of this principle, the company will provide the necessary resources for success including training, mentoring, emotional and business support.
EE’s primary mission is to provide opportunity that fits the emotional makeup of many of the 250,000 unemployed vets between 25 and 44 years.
After World War II, forty-nine percent of veterans went on to start and own their own businesses, according to the Kauffman Foundation. Today, twenty-five percent of Post-9/11 veterans dream of starting and owning their own business, yet only six percent will. 200,000 active duty military will come off duty this year and for the next five years. Based on statistics only six percent will fulfill their dream.

Veteran Business Incubator
Enabled Enterprises plans to develop its version of “Shark Tank” as a veteran’s business incubator, to be called The InVETSment Corps. Veterans will submit their business plans, ideas or inventions for review by a panel.
This concept is similar to the popular television series, Shark Tank. However, unlike the show, EE’s InVETSment Corps will help participating vets with constructive business advice, mentoring and support. The dream is to have investor panels across the country. Enabled Enterprises may develop this concept into a reality television series. The project has received significant interest from major cable networks.
