This objective of this interactive discussion for Veterans is to help promote self-exploration after military service that will, ideally, help them create a roadmap. In particular by discussing finding their 'why?' discussing possible obstacles specific to veteran entrepreneurs and startup success.

Understanding what your driving factors are is crucial because more often than not, people/investors buy into why you are doing something rather than the actual product or service you are providing. People will support and invest in the driving force behind your mission/dreams/goals when they know exactly why you are pursuing something.
