Each segment will be led by top professionals, many of them veterans themselves
The Entrepreneurship Bootcamp is designed to be pragmatic and interactive, and will be led by other veteran entrepreneurs. We want veterans to make good, informed choices and then help them succeed.
None, beyond being a military veteran considering or working on a business of your own. The program is focused on early stage entrepreneurs and those considering jumping in. You don’t have to come with an idea – if you’ve got the hustle, you can join with others to co-found a startup.
Vets in Tech is a nationwide nonprofit which supports our current and returning veterans with re-integration services, and by connecting them to the national technology ecosystem. VIT is committed to bringing together a tech-specific network, resources, and programs for our veterans interested in Education, Entrepreneurship, and Employment.
