The Veteran unemployment rate is 5.8% and the civilian unemployment rate is 4.7%. Veteran Launch will make sure that all military families have a job offer in hand before transitioning to civilian careers by 2021. We provide a SaaS platform that enables companies to hire properly sourced and screened veterans. We use curated education tools and peer-to-peer mentoring to make veterans competitive job candidates. Our immediate focus is on the Bay Area economy. The funds we raise will be used to help us meet the real Bay Area demand for veterans.
