Save The Date: Military Spouse Summit
Join us for the inaugural JPMorgan Chase Military Spouse Entrepreneurship Summit on September 12 in Washington, DC. Presented by VetsinTech in partnership with IVMF, Blue Star Families, and the Military Spouse Chamber of Commerce, this event brings together established military spouse business owners for a day of education, collaboration, and networking to elevate and propel business growth. Attendees should meet at least one of the following criteria: In business for more than three years, with at least $100,000 in annual revenue or currently raising a seed round or later.
HELP SUPPORT: AB46
As some of you know, California is now the only state in the nation that fully taxes veterans pensions and survivor benefits. Needless to say, this policy can make it hard for veterans and military families to make ends meet. That's why VetsinTech is working hard to help pass a bill, known as AB46, that would set things right. Estimates say that passing this bill would generate at least 12,600 more jobs and add $830 million to total personal income for our military families. Anyone interested in helping should contact their state senator and encourage them to pass AB46.
SAVE THE DATE: November 3rd, 2023 at 6pm PST. This Veteran's day, join us for an in-person event at the Marines' Memorial Club in San Francisco to celebrate Veterans' Day at our 8th Annual Fall Gala "Vets 2.0 Beyond the Transition." The evening will commence with an open bar cocktail reception and silent auction. Our leading sponsors, host committee, and special guests will join us at an exclusive VIP cocktail reception. The gala will feature an exquisite dinner with entertainment, awards, and a live auction, followed by two hours of the open bar as we celebrate our service members and gala attendees.
Over the 4th of July holiday, we hosted a remarkable event at Pebble Beach Resorts, known as the VetsinTech IMPACT event. This event marked a significant milestone in our ongoing mission to support veterans and military spouses transitioning into the tech sector. The weekend was filled with engaging activities, including golf at Pebble Beach and a dedicated career event for women veterans and military spouses. We were honored to have Adm. Michael Mullen (ret.) deliver insightful remarks.
