The Veterans Venture Forum seeks to promote investment in fledgling businesses started by America’s military veterans, has attracted 20 veteran entrepreneurs.
The Veterans Venture Forum Capstone Demo Day will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013 from 8:30 AM – 6:30 PM on the campus of National Defense University (NDU) at Fort McNair in Washington, DC. The event will also feature Jay Walker, founder of Priceline.com; curator and chairman of TEDMED, and one of the most successful entrepreneurs in America.
“In launching this initiative, our goal was to give military veterans an opportunity to meet directly with experienced investors and pitch their business plans,” said NDU Foundation President Cathleen Pearl. “Next week, in one room at NDU, that goal will be met. Veteran entrepreneurs will be empowered to pursue investments in their businesses with the same passion and desire they brought to defending our country through military service.”
