I may have some assistance for those of you in the Tampa Bay area. Contact me if you have any questions.

Call of Duty: Veteran as Successful Entrepreneurs
Are you a Veteran who thrives in fast-paced, ambiguous environments? Do you like the mission focus and camaraderie of operating in small teams? Even if you don’t have a technology background you might be ideally suited as a tech entrepreneur!

FirstWaVE is proud to host the first event in a new series called “Veteran Entrepreneurs Roundtable” on November 18th, 2015. This new programming series aims to connect and support military veterans in their efforts to start/join new companies and to take the leap into entrepreneurship.

The Veteran Entrepreneurs Roundtable, led by Mario Rodriguez, will offer a forum to help veterans navigate the start-up stage, educate aspiring entrepreneurs on resources to support growth, and provide networking opportunities with entrepreneurs of all kinds. Our military veterans have skills and experiences that are unique in many ways. The Veteran Entrepreneurs Roundtable is designed to further invigorate them in Tampa Bay's start-up and innovation economy.

Join us November 18th for an exciting panel discussion and Q&A session with Veteran Entrepreneurial leaders in the local community. Learn exactly how to transition your career from serving our country to serving customers and the lessons learned from making the transition from military to entrepreneur.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME, SEATING IS LIMITED.
WELCOME & PANEL DISCUSSION 12:30PM - 1:30PM

Panel Moderator: Mark Swanson
Panelists: Hugh Campbell, Ty Mathen, Ben Smith, and Paul Huszer

NETWORKING & COWORKING 1:30PM to 4:00PM
Arrive early to connect with these and other entrepreneurs, meet Mario Rodriguez, and get introduced to many of the region's best and brightest at FirstWaVE. Feel free to stick around afterwards for more conversations and co-working.

The most difficult thing for me is to figure out how to do business with the Federal Government.
