Washington, DC – On Wednesday, March 7th, the White House will honor Ted Lasser as one of eleven leaders from across the Nation being recognized as Champions of Change for outstanding leadership in entrepreneurial mentoring, counseling and training.  These exceptional leaders support small business owners by helping them accelerate their path to growth.  

The Champions of Change program was created as a part of President Obama’s Winning the Future initiative. Each week, a different sector is highlighted and groups of Champions, ranging from educators to entrepreneurs to community leaders, are recognized for the work they are doing to serve and strengthen their communities.

Small business owners and entrepreneurs enrich our communities, drive innovation, and create jobs. Many entrepreneurs would not be where they are today without the help of a mentor to provide them with expert advice. Through business mentoring, these Champions of Change are helping to rebuild the economy and revitalize their communities.

Veteran Entrepreneurial Transfer, Inc. (VETransfer) founder and decorated Vietnam War Veteran, Ted Lasser, will be recognized at the White House event for VETransfer’s work offering entrepreneurship training and mentoring services at no cost to Military Veterans.

VETransfer is a 2-year pilot program sponsored by the Federal Department of Veteran Affairs as the county’s first business accelerator that specifically addresses the needs of veterans in entrepreneurial endeavors. Based in Milwaukee, WI, VETransfer serves local veterans at their physical accelerator/incubator facility, and offers support to Veterans worldwide through their virtual business accelerator.
