StageXchange will be returning to Patriot Boot Camp for the second year in a row. The entrepreneur program was established to help veterans and active duty military develop the talent, network, and funding for their business and innovations. Patriot Boot Camp has been responsible for helping to launch several prominent veteran-owned businesses and emerging technologies. StageXchange’s Co-Founder and OEF/OIF Veteran, Rushell Hopkins will be there with her husband Keith to help participants develop their pitch and creating lasting business relationships.
“We are proud to be invited back to Patriot Boot Camp and look forward to being able to help my fellow veterans with the challenges of this next phase in their life. Stagexchange will be there to provide not only a platform but also training and mentoring for our military and veteran entrepreneurs. “ ~ Rushell Hopkins
StageXchange will provide PBC participants with access to its institutional-grade deal platform so that they can collaborate with their mentors and develop the type of dealbooks that gain attention and demonstrate the value of their opportunity. The company fully supports the PBC mission to help bridge the gap between military service and business ownership. Last year, Patriot Boot Camp helped launch the successful 3D encryption technology company, Polyport, that later went on to score accolades at SXSW Festival 2018 and raise $1 million of the needed $1.2 million in capital.
From the moment I walked into PBC last year, I knew the conference was different from any other one I’ve attended.
PBC’s real mission is to create a TRUE FAMILY; not a distant cousin you talk to every 5 years, but a true support network. One that gives you solid advice, even if it’s unsolicited; one that makes introductions to VCs, angels, and clients without being asked; one that goes out of their way to give YOU help first, before asking for help themselves.
I look forward to attending and volunteering at the conference this year. PBC will always have a special place in my heart. ~ Chloe Kettell, CEO Polyport & USMC Veteran
The intensive three-day bootcamp is scheduled for September 28th through 30th in Denver, Colorado.
The event provides educational workshops and mentoring with startup experts, and valuable peer-to-peer networking.
