Coworking space and small business incubator Landing Zone is teaming up with VetLaunch, the nonprofit helping veterans transition from military life to civilian life, to host a job fair and entrepreneur expo for veterans.
The free event for veteran job seekers and veteran entrepreneurs will take place on Veteran’s Day, next Thursday, November 12 from 11:00am to 3:00pm (rescheduled from November 11).
Organizers are hoping to assist veterans in finding employment or starting a business using the leadership and other skills obtained through military service.
“Veterans bring amazing advantages to the entrepreneurial game–things like discipline, perspective, leadership ability, and the learned skill of seeing problems as opportunities,” explains the organizers. “They have experience getting a lot done with limited resources. Their ability to prioritize initiatives and tackle those that offer the greatest possibility of success is an invaluable talent.”
