Jessica Yoo Perry

Jessica Yoo Perry served in the U.S. Coast Guard on activity duty for 11 years and 8 of those years was at sea. After leaving the military, she continued advanced studies, pursuing two graduate degrees, including an MBA from Duke University and an Industrial Engineering M.S. degree from the University at Buffalo. Upon graduating, Jessica worked for the federal government, including time as a patent examiner at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Afterward, she joined a software company in a senior analyst role.

Shegot involved with VetsinTech through the many educational programs and special events available to veterans. Jessica bolstered her technical skills even more. She took courses in front-end development and cloud computing, which sharpened her talents ever more, enabling her to pursue more technical roles.

Meanwhile, Jessica began networking at some of our online events. After our VetsinTech Invasion, Amazon reached out to Jessica for a potential job opportunity. Although she was short-listed for Amazon’s final round of interviews, Jessica ended up accepting a full-time IT position as a cybersecurity specialist with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

Ariana Ferguson

My journey to implementing self-care as a major part of my life started on the opposite side of the pendulum. My deployment to Afghanistan was a bit of a blur with minimal hours of sleep and a desk littered with energy drinks, but I can recall the moment I received a care package with a natural shampoo that had a strong tea tree and mint scent. This gift started me on a holistic path of self-healing and growth. And therein lies the foundation of Sulh, a company I founded in 2020, – to heal, love, protect, and grow by returning to nature’s gifts with whole, organic, natural formulas that are intended to nourish our vessels and our souls.

VetsinTech has been a tremendous resource in helping me establish my business and expand my entrepreneurial and technical skillset. I attended a VetsinTech Web Dev course in 2020 which gave me the skills to set up an ecommerce store that I launched a few months later. Sulh is an online store offering natural, handmade wellness and beauty products. Thanks to Vetsintech I was able to better understand fundamental business principles including the knowledge to set up an LLC. The knowledge I acquired through Vetsintech was also helpful in terms of understanding marketing and growth strategy. I am truly grateful to be a member of such a nurturing and proactive community.

CyberSecurity Success Stories

Thomas Prigg

Thomas Prigg recently accepted a security engineering position at Caterpillar, working in cybersecurity and helping identify and stop intrusions by analyzing data logs using some of his skills learned through VetsinTech. Caterpillar Inc. is Fortune 100 company and the world’s largest construction-equipment manufacturer.

Prigg had grown up in poverty and credited the Army with pulling him out of that situation and putting him on a path to build a career in tech. After his military service serving as a paratrooper in the U.S. Army, Prigg went to college to pursue a career in neurobiology. Then Prigg decided to change careers and go into Cybersecurity to get more financial stability and pursue his interest in technology. “Cybersecurity pays extremely well. Don’t be surprised if your starting salary is ninety thousand dollars,” says Prigg. He contrasts the cybersecurity role to his previous position, which he characterizes as “a low paying job that was pretty boring and provided few feelings of accomplishment.”.

VetsinTech was instrumental in helping him get there. Prigg says he kept taking as many courses from VetsinTech as he could, focusing on building his cybersecurity and cloud computing skills and certifications. “Certifications are gold,” says Prigg, and encourages other VetsinTech cohorts to take projects from their VIT courses and add them to their portfolio. His coursework included SEC+, AWS Cloud, and front-end development. And he is currently improving his Python skills with VetsinTech as preparation for the VIT Machine Learning course.

“VetsinTech has been fantastic and has helped me get critical training that I needed for recruiters to even notice me,” says Prigg. To summarize his experience with the VIT Academy, “I’ve been able to fill in a lot of holes in my general knowledge that I needed.”

Bryant got out of the service in 2009 and enrolled in Vanderbilt University's MBA program using the GI Bill, and later went on to receive a Masters in Entrepreneurship from the University of Michigan, also on the GI BIll. After working as Director of Investor Products at StreetShares in Washington DC for three years, Michael returned to Vanderbilt University to run their Center for Entrepreneurship. It was during this time he met his two other technical co-founders (Brad and Tim Potteriger) who were working on their PhDs at the university. They went on to start ARMS Cyber. Earlier this year, Bryant found out about the VetsinTech Pitch Contest sponsored by JPMorgan Chase. The VIT Pitch Contest gave 3 veteran, military, and spouse-owned businesses a chance to win up to $25,000. Over the years, VetsinTech has supported veteran entrepreneurs, equipping them with extensive mentorship and entrepreneurship resources to build high growth technology companies.

VetsinTech and JPMorgan Chase Announce Winners of Tech Startup Pitch Competition

SAN FRANCISCO, June 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- VetsinTech (ViT), the leading national non-profit dedicated to advancing career and entrepreneurship opportunities for veterans in the tech industry, announced the top three winners of its pitch competition event. Hosted by VetsinTech and sponsored by JPMorgan Chase, Arms Cyber Defense was selected from a remaining field of five veteran, military and spouse-owned startup finalists as the grand prize winner in a live, virtual pitch competition that took place yesterday, June 23rd.

Arms Cyber (Autonomous Resilient Management Solutions) provides a proactive defense approach to mitigate IT security risks before they happen by randomizing code to stop memory corruption zero day attacks.

 
"We are honored and excited to be recognized for our innovative cybersecurity solutions. The other finalists pitching tonight were outstanding, and we're privileged to pitch alongside best-in-class, military veteran startups. Thank you to VetsInTech and JPMorgan Chase for their ongoing support and investment in military veteran startups," said Michael Bryant, Co-Founder and CEO of Arms Cyber.

CommSafe AI came in second place and was awarded $10,000. CommSafe AI provides a communication analysis solution designed to help companies protect their most valuable assets - their people and their IP. Coming in third place was Wealth Stack that was awarded $5,000. The company provides a video-based investment and financial wellness platform focused on millennial and diverse communities.

Participation criteria required that businesses be founded by veterans or military spouses and ideally offer a tech solution relevant to financial services, including cybersecurity, AI and machine learning. Companies' diversity, equity and inclusion as well as social impact efforts were also strongly considered.

In addition to prize money, these companies will have the opportunity for mentorship from senior leaders across JPMorgan Chase.

Veteran entrepreneurs play a pivotal role in fueling the country's economic engine, generating $1.14 trillion dollars in annual revenues. Approximately 9.1% of U.S. businesses are veteran-owned and employ more than 5 million people. Yet, according to the Kauffman Foundation, since World War II, veteran entrepreneurship has steadily declined from 49% to just 5% today. This is largely due to a lack of business tools and resources—building a network, finding a mentor, accessing capital are all particularly challenging coming right out of the military.

"Many don't realize that an entrepreneurial spirit is implicit in military service—both for the service members and their spouses. Military life involves constant flexibility, organization, gaining trust in new settings, which are all critical skills for building a business," says Mark Elliott. "We are thrilled for these winning companies and what they can bring to their industries, and we look forward to continuing to support them on the road ahead."

"This was a one-of-a-kind opportunity to showcase the most promising veteran and military spouse-owned businesses and shine a light on the high caliber of their startups. The support from JPMorgan Chase made this event possible and an overwhelming success. This event helps grow the VetsinTech S.U.N. (startup network) ecosystem and inspire the network of investors, trusted advisors and service providers to support this important cause. We look forward to future collaborations with JPMorgan Chase to continue supporting veteran and military spouse-owned businesses," said Katherine Webster, founder and CEO of VetsinTech.

Over the years, VetsinTech has supported veteran entrepreneurs, equipping them with extensive mentorship and recently launched the VetsinTech S.U.N. Startup Network to support veteran and military spouse entrepreneurs build high growth technology companies. The range of initiatives that VetsinTech provides includes frequent workshops, bootcamps, hackathons, and virtual office hours. This business pitch competition extends the support and numerous initiatives that VetsinTech offers.

Success Story: Patricio Onquit

Success Story: Patricio Onquit





I am so thankful that Vets in Tech exist! I wish it existed back in 2010 when I first got out of service. I really felt alone, and hopeless in a world that was supposed to be home. I really had to figure things out on my own. And felt that way for the longest time until recently being more active in the Veteran Community. I was recommended to look into Vets in Tech by an Air Force Officer colleague. He talked about a community of Veterans that work in the tech industry. I thought it is great to see if I could network as I’m a Realtor who specializes in helping Vets utilize their benefits to become homeowners. My first Vets in Tech was a mixer where I got to hear CO CEO of Salesforce speak about his support in hiring Veterans. As well as other top-level execs speak about the same or other Veterans talk about their journey on how they achieved success after the Military. It was so uplifting to hear the support, and the paths of other Veterans like myself make it in Silicon Valley.

Even though I was starting to get great momentum in my Real Estate career I heard about the Vets in Tech Coding Bootcamp for Front End Web Development. Something that is still instilled with me from the Military is that the better cross-trained the individual is in taking responsibility for many hats; the easier it is for the individual to get promoted and achieve success. So I decided to take the Bootcamp to have a better understanding of my own Business Website, and have the credentials just in case I need it in the future. Coming from a business background, I honestly got overwhelmed on day 1. I thought it wasn’t for me. But through the patience and support of my instructor and Vets in Tech contacts. As well as the encouragement of my Veteran peer classmates. I was actually able to finish! I haven’t felt this type of comradery pushing me to achieve something when I wanted to ring the bell and quit since I was in the Military.

I really feel Vets in Tech helped me in so many ways as a Military Veteran Realtor. They have helped me network with other Veterans in the Tech Community. Help me strengthen my technical skills which allows me to reach out to other Veterans and potential clients via online platforms. Which allows me to help Veterans utilize their benefits to become homeowners in a not so friendly VA buyer area. Along with serving on my Non-Profit VAREP (Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals) I also was on the front lines helping the new Blue Water Navy Act VA Loan lobbied and passed in Washington DC. A bill that helps Vietnam Veterans claim benefits that have been deserved for way too long now, and Veterans in high-cost counties like the Bay Area. I’ve now helped 6 Veterans and their families become homeowners in the last year alone. It truly is my passion to continually serve the Veteran Community, and I’m so glad to be aligned with Vets in Tech.
