Vet Tech: From "Deployment" to Exit
Veterans are leading the way with amazing technology companies here in Philadelphia. Join us to hear stories from veteran led tech entrepreneurs, meet innovative companies being built by our service men and women, and get insights from some of our region's leading tech investors and business leaders.
Discussions: *Funding, Operating and Exit: Doc Parghi (Partner, SRI Capital, former Global Head, CSC, Civilian Aide to Secretary of the Army). Hear from one of the region's leading investors and technology operators on how he helped tech firms scale and exit, and what Doc looks for in tech firms he invests in.
*Sustainable Solutions: Dan Hughes (Partner, Claritee Group, USNA). Dan will share how he built a profitable health software firm with one other co-founder while still managing his day job.
*Disrupt!: Jake Murphy (CEO, West Point Graduate). Jake has started a platform setting out to disrupt the landscaping industry. How has this former officer and team built a solution on a shoestring, and how have they survived working in the weeds?
*Innovate: Josh Phifer (Co-Founder, F-22 Pilot) and Vince Kuchar (Co-Founder, Army Ranger). What happens when two high speed military guys meet at Wharton? They start an Internet of Things company…find out how they've managed to build the product, and close deals in under a year.
