Our mentors are so amazing! This month, we want to highlight another incredible example of the talent and hard work of our mentors. Tre King is an entrepreneur himself and runs his own company, iCandy Labs. In his “spare” time, Tre mentors Veterans with The Jonas Project, reviews business plans, and basically just pitches in anywhere he can. He’s a ROCK STAR by our standards!
Tre says of his experience with The Jonas Project, “I am always excited when I see David’s (TJP Capacity Builder) emails in my inbox and I relish the opportunity to participate in providing our Veterans with guidance.”
He says that having an opportunity to work with Veterans through The Jonas Project gives him a great deal of personal satisfaction, especially when he sees the excitement and enthusiasm of the entrepreneurs he mentors.
Tre is currently working with two Veterans who are building web-based products, Brian Gilb and Kevin Kirk. He loves the time he spends with our VOBs and it’s clear that the VOBs that work with him are getting something they could never find elsewhere.
“I have the utmost respect for the service and sacrifice that our Veterans have given of themselves, having the opportunity to give back to The Jonas Project and our Veterans is my favorite part of this important opportunity,” says Tre. “I would love to see each Veteran succeed in realizing their dream to own a business in America.”
We can’t say it enough how much we love our mentors and what an amazing job they do for us and with us. Thanks Tre for setting the bar so high!
