A program is open to USA military veterans and spouses to attend a 3-day tech entrepreneurship boot camp in Denver, Colorado. Attendees will receive one-on-one mentoring to advance and inspire their business startups.

PBC’s core program is an intensive 3-day technology entrepreneurship boot camp modeled after the Techstars accelerator to provide educational training and 1:1 mentoring to inspire and advance startup founders. PBC runs this program twice per year, in Texas and Colorado, for cohorts of 50 tech entrepreneurs.

How the Program is Structured:

PBC’s core program is an intensive three-day event designed to engage, inspire, and mentor Veterans and their spouses, to help them start, innovate, and scale the next generation of technology-focused businesses. PBC provides participants with free education and training in entrepreneurial and business skills, as well as mentorship from successful leaders from the entrepreneurial, military and business communities. PBC hosts its event at no cost to participants in locations across the country.
