Military veterans are underserved in many ways by entrepreneurial ecosystems, and we'd like to highlight some success stories and begin socializing the reasons that veterans are actually hard-wired to be extraordinary startup founders and early-stage company employees.
Our panelists will include a number of experienced founders and leaders from Austin's startup ecosystem (who also happen to be military veterans and/or PBC mentors/alumni).
This panel will discuss several topics, including:
The role their military service has played in their journey as entrepreneurs and startup employees
Military tools, processes & training they've applied directly to their companies
Stigmas and adversity they've faced moving from military service to industry
Reasons they deliberately seek out & hire veterans
Translating military experience to civilian/startup environments
