Veterans Opportunities

Elevate is a proud supporter of our Veterans.

One way that we are working to support our area veterans is through our partnership with Code Platoon to offer their remote services in our center when we open in January 2020. 

Code Platoon is a nonprofit coding Bootcamp for veterans and military spouses. The program is full-time for 14 weeks, where students learn software development skills. Training is available in-person through their Chicago classroom or remotely. Please visit codeplatoon.org for more information and to apply today! 

They are currently Accepting Applications for the next cohort, which are due by midnight on Sunday, January 26th, 2020. Just 10 weeks away.  Scholarships are available through Code Platoon. https://www.codeplatoon.org/scholarships/

As Elevate, we are working to create an atmosphere which spurs innovation and entrepreneurship. Veterans or military spouses who are accepted into the program can now meet with other classmates who are also doing the class remotely at our center. 

Please visit https://www.codeplatoon.org/apply-now/ for more information. 

We are looking forward to supporting our community in all aspects of business development, entrepreneurship, and innovation.
