Learn More About Supporting Vetrepreneurs


"The challenges of transitioning from Active Duty Military and beginning a new life as a civilian business owner have been many for my wife and I. The Hayhurst LaunchLab and Vetrepreneurs program staff have provided amazing support in our new business venture reducing our stress load significantly. The LaunchLab students and staff are all very professional and show desire in seeing our long term success. The resources they have provided to us have helped save significant time allowing for realignment of limited resources to further along the growth required to survive the beginnings of the business. We hope to have long term interaction with the folks of Hayhurst LaunchLab and they have inspired us to develop the ability to give back to Veterans at some point in our near future.  We feel very fortunate that West Virginia has the LaunchLab program available to both veterans and young aspiring business entrepreneurs within our amazing state."
