March 2013 Chicago Booth DC Entrepreneur's Advisory Group
Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 7:00 PM (EDT)
The Chicago Booth DC Entrepreneur's Advisory Group will meet on March 20 from 7-9 pm at the offices of Wilson Sonsini at 1700 K Street.
Our speaker will be Blake Hall, founder of Troop ID (www.troopid.com). Troop ID is one of DC's hottest startups, earning a shout-out from the White House recently:
""Companies like Troop ID answer First Lady Michelle Obama's appeal to "Do what you do best" in connecting service members, veterans and military spouses with the resources they deserve. Joining Forces applauds Troop ID, those companies with whom it partners to offer military deals, and all companies that find ways to honor the service of our military and their family members."
Blake is a decorated US Army Ranger who returned from tours in Iraq and attended Harvard Business School. You may have seen his recent essay in the Washington Post about his efforts to bring the family of his Iraqi interpreter to the United States.
Please join us for a memorable session.
As always, the meeting is free and open to all. We'll engage in a vibrant discussion about the company and their current issues and opportunities. Our hosts at Wilson Sonsini will provide pizza and soft drinks to sustain us through the evening.
