The event aims to showcase tech-related innovations and opportunities within Seattle’s military community.
FourBlock is partnering with Code Fellows, Operation Code, and Bunker Labs for the first annual Veterans in Tech Summit. The event will bring together the Seattle area’s top technology, corporate, education, and civic leaders to showcase the technological innovations and opportunities available within the region’s military community.
Sponsored by Chase, the summit will take place September 13 at Code Fellows’ campus in Seattle, beginning with registration and networking at 3pm PDT and concluding with Happy Hour at 6pm. Company leaders, community leaders, hiring managers, veterans in tech, and veterans looking to transition into the region’s growing tech field are all encouraged to attend.
“The Seattle area is home to the nation’s fourth largest joint army and air base, the third largest navy presence, and the military has more than a $12 billion dollar impact on the Washington state economy,” said Code Fellows. “Seattle’s unique position as a focal point for both burgeoning technological innovation and a strong military presence has created some amazing opportunities for collaboration that this event intends to explore.”
