Veterans are for Startups

A popular misconception about military Veterans is that - because of their uniformed service - they are rigid, regimented, and only know how to give or follow orders. While structure and order are hallmarks of the military, service members must be creative, inventive, risk-tolerant, team- & mission-oriented, and operate decisively in dynamic, ambiguous & time-constrained environments. Sound familiar?

This panel will explore how military Veterans are leveraging their gumption and discipline to build startups of scale & impact, and why they make both exceptional founders & early-stage employees.
