The event for new-to-DAV Patriot Boot Camp founders in the veteran and military connected community will be held Thursday, February 9 through Saturday, February 11 at DAV National Headquarters in Erlanger, KY (near Cincinnati, Ohio). Please see a sample agenda here. The application deadline is December 8.
Up to 50 participants will receive access to mentors, educational programming, and a robust community of experts and peers to help them innovate and build impactful businesses.
Event pitch contest finalists will go on to compete for thousands of dollars in obligation-free funding.
At a similar event in October, 94% of surveyed participants said they would return for future programs.
Entrepreneurs, investors, venture capital firms and business leaders nationwide will converge for the event. During its 10 years of operation, the program has helped more than 1,000 entrepreneurs start successful businesses. Alumni have raised over $150 million in capital and created nearly 2,000 jobs.
In addition to founders, DAV is seeking leaders to serve as mentors, presenters, panelists and event volunteers. If you are interested in supporting the event, please contact info@patriotbootcamp.
There is no cost for registration or participation beyond personal travel-related expenses and lodging. Those who apply will be contacted regarding future opportunities and programming to support their entrepreneurial journey.
