Company’s COO to Share Practical Insights to Veterans Interested in Starting their Own Businesses
Fairfax, VA – June 20, 2012 – Three Pillar Global, a product development partner creating software that accelerates business value, today announced that its Chief Operating Officer, Ken Quaglio, is participating in Florida State University’s fifth annual Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV) program. Quaglio, an Army veteran, has been an ongoing speaker for the EBV program and its sister program for family members, EBV-F.
The EBV and EBV-F programs are designed to help Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and their families realize their entrepreneurial dreams by providing core business skills and other assistance. The 2012 EBV at Florida State is bringing together 27 veterans from 9 states representing all branches of service. These men and women will attend online training courses, along with presentations delivered by a roster of professors, public policy experts, and successful entrepreneurs.
As a guest entrepreneur, Quaglio will help EBV students bridge the gap between course material and real-world experience. During his presentation, Quaglio will describe the challenges he has faced throughout his career, how he overcame those hurdles, lessons learned, and the keys to his success as a businessman. Students will benefit from Quaglio’s first-hand knowledge of making the transition from the military to the commercial world.
“These individuals all have made enormous sacrifices serving our country. The safety and security they provide is essential for businesses to flourish,” Quaglio said. “I am honored to be a part of a program that assists these deserving veterans. I hope my contribution puts them a bit closer to achieving their business goals.”
The training portion of the EBV program is complete. Presentations run June 19 -27.
