Nick Smith – Navy Veteran & Partner, 37th & Moss

Nick Smith – Navy Veteran & Partner, 37th & Moss

From a young age, Nick had a desire to take to the skies, inspired by his Great Uncle’s job of flying F-86s during the Korean War and his Grandfather’s service in the Air Force. Opting for the Navy, he fulfilled his passion for flying as an F-18 test pilot during his active duty service. Post-military life, Nick set his sights on entrepreneurship, gaining valuable experience in small businesses at a bank. This journey led him to join forces with a business school colleague, giving birth to 37th and Moss – a dynamic search fund dedicated to empowering entrepreneurs in acquiring and running small businesses.

37th & Moss

37th & Moss, a search fund, supports entrepreneurs in acquiring and operating a single business. Through defined criteria, networking, due diligence, and negotiation, the fund aims to acquire a business, actively participate in operations, and honor the legacy of the previous owner. The focus is on a smooth transition, cohesive operations, community impact, and continuous improvement while respecting the business’s mission and values.

Why do thousands of merchants put us through a bootcamp to join their loyalty program? Why do they make checkout an obstacle course?

It’s embarrassing. Time consuming. Intrusive. Cumbersome. Broken.


Because no one ever built a simple & secure way to validate our veteran status at checkout.

Until now.

Want to be recognized at select merchants simply by swiping your existing Visa card?

Join our waitlist and be one of the first veterans to have this power in your wallet.
