San Francisco, CA – September 13, 2016 – VetsinTech and Galvanize today announce an expanded strategic relationship to support VetsinTech chapters and veteran entrepreneurship around the country. VetsinTech chapters will officially be located at Galvanize campuses across the nation including San Francisco, Seattle, Austin, New York City, Phoenix and Denver.
In addition to VetsinTech chapter leadership residing at each of the Galvanize campuses, VetsinTech will launch its accelerator with a number of immersive programs such as VetCap (capital for veterans), Business Law Basics, Lean Startup, and Business Plan Development, which will be offered “a la carte” or in a full day “Entrepreneur Bootcamp” for early stage veteran led companies. The VetsinTech accelerator will provide entrepreneurial training programs, introductions to VetsinTech’s investor network and mentorships with top veteran entrepreneurs including Craig Cummings and Kelly Perdew of Moonshots Capital, Beau Laskey of SVB, and Craig Hanson of Next World Capital. As part of the accelerator program, Galvanize will offer highly discounted membership for veteran entrepreneur teams, to give these startups the opportunity to grow within a community of fellow tech-entrepreneurs and engineers.
“By combining the VetsinTech resources together with those offered by Galvanize, we strive to provide best-in-class support for our veteran entrepreneurs,” said Katherine Webster, Founder of VetsinTech.
VetsinTech members will have access to entrepreneurial programming and resources, top talent graduating from Galvanize Web Development and Data Science immersives, and the Galvanize network across the learning community’s eight urban campuses.
