VetsinTech is a non-profit organization that supports Veterans by bringing together a tech-specific network of resources and programs for Veterans interested in education, entrepreneurship, and employment. As part of Military Appreciation Month and national Small Business Week, a new initiative was launched by Vets in Tech to help Veteran entrepreneurs generate the necessary capital to start their own business.

The new program is called VetCap, as in capital for Veterans. VetCap consists of a nation-wide series of workshops and seminars designed educate Veteran entrepreneurs on where and how to raise the capital they need to start and expand their businesses.

VetCap is an independent program that was organized by VetsinTech and other private concerns across the country. Veteran entrepreneurs should note that VetCap and Vets in Tech are not part of or affiliated with any government agency.
The organizers of VetCap devised the program after attending a White House and Joining Forces Veterans Entrepreneurship workshop in February.

VetsinTech hosted the first of hopefully many VetCap workshops on May 14th in San Francisco. The event was held at the offices of the venture capital firm Next World Capital. More than 50 Veteran Entrepreneurs attended, and a panel of experts in investing and lending led discussions on raising capital and pitching to investors.
