Last Friday, Nov. 1, Eric Stoneking, pictured at center, signed documents to contribute $100,000 to the Invictus Project, a nonprofit business conceived by Sam Peterson, ACB ’18, during his undergraduate capstone course at Regis. The Invictus Project treats veterans who have traumatic brain injuries and mental health disorders.

Peterson, at right, and Jeff Haugland, at left, co-founded the Invictus Project, winning third place and $1,000 in last year’s Innovation Challenge at the Anderson College of Business. A private donor then donated another $10,000.

All three men were U.S. Army bomb technicians. “It’s important for veterans to step up to help veterans,” Stoneking said.
