Denver: The Best Place In America for Veterans Transitioning Into Tech & Startups

Colorado is home to 500-1000 veterans exiting the military each month. This represents talent from each branch of service, and a huge resource for our state. For many states, absorbing that many people into the workforce might seem daunting, but not Colorado. With resources like Patriot Bootcamp and the VFWPost1, major companies like Zayo committed to hiring veterans, and the nations only coding bootcamps certified to accept the GI Bill, Colorado is ready, willing and able to train and hire vets into top jobs. This panel explores those resources and shares stories of success from people transitioning from the military into civilian life, finding meaningful work in the Denver startup & tech community.
