VetTechTrek creates pipelines to technology-focused companies for military veterans and their spouses. It was founded when veterans with technology backgrounds realized the true opportunity set for transitioning service members was not adequately presented by government resources.
In the past year VetTechTrek has ran 6 immersive recruiting visits for 180 veterans and spouses to 60 tech companies. At the end of a VetTechTrek event, participants have a clear idea of which industry they want to work in and a focused, tactical plan of next steps to achieve their goals.
It’s no secret veterans represent a diverse asset that immediately augments an organization’s culture and ability to drive global impact.
The founders, Mike and Steve, had experiences at both startups and larger tech companies and were frustrated that more of our peers couldn’t crack the hiring code, or simply didn’t know the full opportunity set presented to them.
VetTechTrek events were changing the game.
Uniting the military and tech communities is our calling. And because community is the heart and soul of our organization, the in-person treks bring it to life. We want to bring this same experience to the 200,000 service members searching for their next great mission every single year.
