We’re happy to announce that Explorer’s Guide Online (EGO) has been selected as a Semi-Finalist in the Hofstra Veteran’s Venture Challenge. From a pool of over 100 veteran owned businesses, EGO joins 18 other veteran owned startups in the semi-final round and will compete for $100k in seed capital. While we couldn’t be more excited to compete for seed capital, we’re equally excited to learn from such a talented group of veteran founders. 

What Does This Mean for Our Students?

As part of this competition, EGO will receive mentoring from world-class entrepreneurs and accomplished CEOs. Ultimately, this mentorship will help us improve our course offerings and accomplish our goal of “training mariners to operate safely.” As EGO continues to transform maritime licensing and training, this selection demonstrates that our unique, online, training platform is on track to be the best in the industry.
