Greetings Veterans and supporters!  Lots happening at VetsinTech – much good work in support of our veterans.  VetsinTech was invited to the White House at the end of February where we attended the Veterans Entrepreneurship Workshop.  Click to see pics. Several great ideas in support of our veteran entrepreneurs surfaced and are pushing forward – so watch for more news here, as VetsinTech will be launching a very exciting new program in SF on May 14th at Next World Capital with support from the White House!

On March 20th and 21st VetsinTech hosted the VA at Intuit for a Lean Start-in Design for Delight session and there are great things to come from that as well.  Click to see pics. And another one. We held ViT Employer event at the end of that session, welcoming new employers into our coalition including Akamai, GE Software, and Manpower Group Solutions.  Together with our group of employers we hosted over 60 veterans who were able to discuss employment opportunities and also help ViT celebrate 2 years since our very first event – The Startup Veterans Hackathon on March 24th and 25th in 2012!

Finally to close out March – GE Garage and VetsinTech DC hosted an amazing event highlighting Advanced Manufacturing and 3D Printing opportunities for veterans careers on March 31st.  Click to see pics.  We are now on to planning some pretty special events for April, May, and June – stay tuned!!
