Harness the power of storytelling to unlock opportunities for the military community at scale.
Veterans have a perception problem. We can change that.
The current national narrative around veterans does a disservice to our military community and may prevent transitioning military professionals from reaching their full potential in their post-service lives.
Battle Tested Veterans believes in sharing stories, not stereotypes. Storytelling is a proven method to create compassion, understanding and cooperation among individuals. Our personal struggles and growth, when told in our own words, imprints our experiences on the brains and hearts of others. Through the power of first-person narratives, Battle Tested Veterans nurtures empathy and connection between people.
By sharing real stories, showcasing battle-tested value, and cultivating understanding, we are on a mission to harness the power of storytelling to unlock opportunities for the military community at scale.
