Last Month, we hosted The Invasion in Silicon Valley A national conference that brought 500 veterans from around the country into SF for 2 days of keynotes, panels, workshops, and networking. We had over 40 incredible speakers, and a dozen of the largest tech orgs who joined as partners. Over 250,000 veterans transition out of service every year, 80% of them enter civilian life without a job --- meanwhile there are millions of open roles in tech including fast growing demand in cybersecurity in which veterans are uniquely positioned to succeed. VetsinTech works to close the gap. Thank you to all our attendees, speakers, and sponsors for making this such an impactful program. View photos from the event here.
