Meet the 2017 grand prize winner

We’re proud to announce that Sword & Plough is the grand prize winner of the 5th annual FedEx Small Business Grant Contest. Through their unique business model, Sword & Plough works with American manufacturers who employ veterans to make wearable goods out of recycled materials from the U.S. military that would otherwise be thrown away.

“With the grant money, we plan to further our mission by hiring a military veteran with logistics experience to help us expand our production and improve our supply chain and inventory management.” – Emily Núñez Cavness and Betsy Núñez
