Veterans Pathway to Business Success is a Florida nonprofit that is encouraging veterans to become entrepreneurs. With grants to new and existing businesses, the thought here is as members of the military, these vets were always working towards a mission and not shy away from challenges. Their first grant in the amount of $30,000 was just awarded.
