Join Vets in Tech for one of our best events ever!! The 1st EVER Women-VetsinTech hackathon @ Facebook will be a shortened version of our popular weekend event but will be action packed with goal of getting to a MVP (minimum viable product) or demo/pitch by the end of the day. In partnership with the SBA and V-WISE, VetsinTech has an exciting day planned exclusively for women veterans.
Facebook will be bringing in some of their best advisors and fellow veterans to support the teams as well as leading a “LeanIn” session during the day. More information will be announced leading up to the event (keynotes, judges, prizes, etc) so be sure to keep checking back here: http://www.vetsintech.co/women-facebook-hackathon/
Military veterans gathered in NYC for Vetcap, a new national series of financial workshops sponsored by VetsinTech.
For military veterans looking to break into the tech industry, a friendly audience goes a long way. So say participants in Vetcap, a new national series of workshops launched by VetsinTech (ViT) that gives veteran entrepreneurs a chance to network and “pitch” their startup idea to a panel of industry pros as part of a financial workshop. Sponsored by the New York City chapter of ViT, the latest Vetcap was held at Union Square Ventures on June 18, 2014. Nine vets pitched in all.
