The article opens by profiling the military service and professional career of Harmony Oswald, Founder & CEO of Legalucy (FI Silicon Valley). Besides being a startup Founder & military veteran, Oswald is also a Member of the California Bar, and an active entrepreneurial organizer in her own right.
But Oswald was not the only U.S. veteran and FI Alumni featured in the piece - also profiled is U.S. Air Force and Air National Guard veteran Michael Fraser, the Co-Founder & CEO of Refactr (FI Seattle).
Also notably spotlighted is Herbert Dwyer, U.S. Marine Corps veteran and CEO of EMPEQ (Empower Equity), an Ithica-based startup that recently pitched in FI's Veterans Demo Day global livestream event.
Last but certainly not least, the issue highlighted the work of Founder Institute HQ's own Head of Global Operations and California Guard veteran, Ryan Micheletti, who is heavily involved in working closely with each of our partners across the Veteran Founder Initiative, including Patriot Boot Camp and Bunker Labs.
