In one of my favorite initiatives by Techstars – we’ve announced a Patriot Boot Camp, to help veterans and military service members start technology companies. They get mentorship and guidance, and will be able to network with other veterans to help find co-founders, and the 3 day program will culminate in a mini demo day, just like we do at Techstars.
I love love love this. My grandfather was in the military, my father-in-law was in the military, and I just don’t think we do enough as a country to support the people that enable us to sleep peacefully at night.
If you know service members that have an entrepreneurial spirit, hook them up with Patriot Boot Camp, and lets help increase their odds of startup success!
