We didn’t slow down much for the month of October. On the 5th, our first cohort of members completed the three-week Entrepreneurs Sprint with the Boise State University Venture College. This fast paced program uses the Lean Startup Methodology and provided an opportunity for our members to propel their non-profit or business idea into an actionable plan. We are about to announce the dates for our next cohort so stay tuned if you are interested! Learn more about the programin our Pathways to Entrepreneurship Blog
Hire Heroes USA hosted a one-day workshop focused on federal employment. They have a special team that is entirely dedicated to helping veterans and military spouses obtain federal jobs and they flew into Boise to provide their expertise. Even if you missed the workshop, you can still tap into these resources. Connect with Hire Heroes USA today!
On October 12th we sat down with three-time Olympic gold medalist, Kristin Armstrong, for our newest installment of Mission43 INC. The military played a big role in her life as she moved around the world in a USMC family, and then even though she didn’t start cycling until later in life, it didn’t stop her from standing at the top of the podium at all levels of cycling. This 43INC didn’t disappoint and provided great opportunities to Innovate + Network + Connect! Read our three take-aways from Kristin Armstrong in our 43INC blog.
Finally, we are excited to announce that our Welcome Kits started shipping. The Welcome Kit includes the very popular trucker hat, M43 camo tumbler (great for keeping your coffee warm or beer cold), and then some stickers so you can slap one on your gear and take the road less traveled! How do you get one you ask? Expect an email very soon that gives all Mission43 military and military spouses the opportunity to take our survey, and then we will ship this to you for FREE!
