"Even though our veterans possess the work ethic, high character, and strong leadership skills needed to launch meaningful and enduring technology companies, they increasingly find themselves unemployed. We created the ‘Vet-Tech Fellowship' to encourage veterans to consider entrepreneurship, and creating a job, as an option."
