What is Project Ethos?
The goal of Project Ethos is to provide veterans an edge in the start-up process—a process that is often riddled with uncertainty and financial pressure. Project Ethos strives to offset these difficulties through its coalition of affiliates, including its anchor affiliate Poyner Spruill LLP. To that end, members of Project Ethos have access to mentorship pairings, preferred pricing, and business-focused workshops. These resources, in addition to our expanding professional network, give Project Ethos members a decisive head start.

The mentorship-pairing program connects Project Ethos members with volunteer affiliates. These pairings provide our members with a sounding board for both ideas and concerns. Some of the most important decisions a business can make occur early in the start-up process. And having a mentor available to help guide you through this critical time can make all the difference.
As the anchor affiliate of Project Ethos, Poyner Spruill offers continuing education on an array of business-related issues. These educational opportunities are provided at no charge to both members and affiliates alike. Whether through an in-person seminar or monthly newsletter, our materials analyze current legal issues, emerging markets, and business trends.
A number of our business affiliates graciously offer their services to Project Ethos members at a preferred rate. This includes Poyner Spruill, who has designed a number of legal resources to assist with the start-up process. While not all of our affiliates are able to provide their services at a preferred rate, simply having access to a professional network can save a new business time, money, and concern.
