Veterans in the Valley
Andreessen Horowitz (a16z) and The COMMIT Foundation are teaming up to provide 12 high-potential transitioning military veterans exclusive access to a16z’s extensive network of technology leaders. During a two-day workshop, participating veterans with a demonstrated interest in the software and internet technology sector will work with industry mentors to establish clear career goals and strategies for a successful transition.
COMMIT and a16z believe in the power of mentorship and know that just one story from an inspirational leader can be life changing. We believe the first step for a veteran to identify his or her desired career path is to better understand the values and ideals that shape who they are, beyond the Military. This workshop will provide veterans an opportunity to explore these topics with their mentor, with the goal of:
*Expanding their imagination about possible career paths *Building confidence about transitioning to a new industry *Increasing self-awareness about core values and desired career outcomes *Providing information about and access to key players in the software and internet technology sector
For veterans interested in participating, you must download and submit the application below by February 1, 2017. All applicants must be post-9-11 veterans. Veterans will be notified by February 15, 2017 whether they are selected for the program and all expenses for the event will be covered to include travel and logistics.
