Please support VetsinTech during this Holiday Season! See below #GivingTuesday

It’s been just over four years since we kicked off the VetsinTech (ViT) community and it has been an amazing time! We now have twelve chapters across the country, have introduced more than a dozen vet-owned businesses to venture capital, partnered to launch a veterans incubator, ran more than a half dozen veterans hackathons (including the first ever all women veteran hackathon), and introduced thousands of vets and loved ones to their next career &/or job. We have trained approx. 100 veterans on Salesforce administration and trained/certificated 20 veterans in cybersecurity with Palo Alto Networks. We’ve been to the White House several times to raise awareness of veterans issues, partnered with Salesforce, Accenture, Wells Fargo, LinkedIn, Intuit, Workday, Facebook, Ten-X, Palo Alto Networks, TEKsystems and many more to create change and launch careers for our greatest natural resource….our veterans!

VetsinTech recently secured funding from Samsung to train 50 veterans in Web Development at the Galvanize School. Additionally, Palo Alto Networks will be partnering with ViT to provide additional cybersecurity training, and we will be training more veterans on the Salesforce platform. We have a lot of work ahead and need your help to ensure veterans are ready to learn and get hired in high paying careers.

The Giving Tuesday social media campaign on the 1st Tuesday after Thanksgiving (November 29th) is a day dedicated to giving to the causes that mean something to you.

For the last four years, ViT has supported service members in their transition thru Education, Employment, and Entrepreneurship in the tech industry.

We encourage you to get involved in the VetsinTech Giving Tuesday Campaign via Facebook or Twitter. Here’s how:

ViT Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/veteransintech): Use #donate + any $ amount (ex. #donate $20)

Or …Tweet [email protected]

What a great way for our tech savvy veterans community to give and share our support to VetsinTech and our mission.
