If you are a woman interested in tech entrepreneurship, then you need to clear your calendar for Aug. 25. Vets-in-Tech will be hosting its first women’s hackathon at the Facebook campus in Menlo Park, California. ViT’s founder, Katherine Webster, says ViT is “very excited to be honoring our women veteran entrepreneurs through this event dedicated to supporting their future tech endeavors.”
I received an email today informing me of a new, non-profit group supporting veteran entrepreneurs. As I was reading through the email, I had two thoughts. First, this is a great program, and second, this program already exists. It made me think about all of the charities and programs aimed at helping veterans, and I wondered, are there too many veteran-focused charities?
