Agenda

Who is Attending?

Attendees:
The Invasion merges two worlds of military and technology.

  1. Veterans from around the country, in various levels of transition out of their military careers, will convene to receive opportunities for education, employment, and entrepreneurship in the tech industry.

  2. Technology Leaders, Investors, HR & Recruiters, Engineers, and others representing a wide variety of industries with a high-tech focus and communities, will deliver content and lead workshops covering topics for our veterans

This cross-section of military and technology worlds is what makes VetsinTech unique, and makes its first conference – The Invasion in Silicon Valley – a first of it’s kind event that creates opportunities for our military heroes from around the country to gain access to 2 days of opportunities in technology education, employment, and entrepreneurship.
