Join a network of entrepreneurs, leaders and business owners to grow your faith and your career.
Are you running a business? Running a small business? You might be an ideal candidate for the annual SENT scholarship.
SENT Ventures calls on Catholic leaders and entrepreneurs to apply for their one-year virtual scholarship. Among other things, the program includes the following:
- Access to an advisory board of other Catholic founders and leaders
- Mentorship of top business leaders
- Access to workshops and networking events with top leaders
- Personalized spiritual training for the busy entrepreneurial leader
SENT Ventures is a support network for Catholic entrepreneurs, apostolate leaders and small business owners. Its founder, John Cannon, combined his brilliant business career with years spent in Carmelite monasteries (you can read more about its history here). The great saints who were âentrepreneurs of the spiritâ inspired the creation of SENT Ventures.
âOur community is made up of leaders eager to take their business and themselves to the next level,â Cannon said in an interview with Aleteia.
If this sounds like you, apply by August 2. You will join a community of people who share your passion for professional excellence and your desire to grow spiritually.
âThe one-year fellowship is a comprehensive transformational experience that combines business strategy development, hands-on spirituality, business mentoring, peer community and accountability to fuel growth,â Cannon said.
SENT communities meet virtually monthly with a professional facilitator to journey together as a group through personal and spiritual training, professional support and best practices, and genuine friendship and collaboration.
Former scholars say they have benefited greatly from the program.
âSENT has helped me immensely in building Hallow,â said Alex Jones, CEO and co-founder of Hallow. âHaving a community of fellow Catholic business leaders is a great resource to bounce ideas off and help you stay grounded.
âI never thought that the SENT community would be what it has become for me. It’s an absolute support system that has helped me grow as a Catholic, entrepreneur, person, husband and father, âsaid Erich Beyer, CEO and Founder of Archangel Capital.
SENT Ventures has partnered with the OSV Institute and the IDEA Center at the University of Notre Dame to develop the world’s first accelerator to integrate world-class business and entrepreneurial approaches with deep Catholic spirituality. The accelerator was part of the OSV Innovation Challenge in which 350 innovative Catholic initiatives competed for $ 300,000 in prizes.
Cannon said, âWe have had the privilege of nurturing the leaders of a wide range of organizations, from venture-funded startups to large nonprofits. We receive the best grades and comments from our fellows we are therefore convinced that the SENT scholarship can be invaluable.
If you’re a Catholic leader ready to take it to the next level, check out the SENT Ventures website or attend an upcoming information session. Hopefully the scholarship program will be exactly what you are looking for.
