This year marks the return of its in-person event. The Gala is held each year in the fall to fund educational scholarships for veterans and military spouses and to celebrate Veterans Day.

"VetsinTech provides an essential service to our veterans, and I'm proud to support their efforts to help veterans transition to successful careers in tech," Founder of craigslist and Craig Newmark Philanthropies, and a board member of VetsinTech. "This event is a great way to recognize veterans' talent and their diversity in the tech sector."

A preview of festivities at VetsinTech Veterans Day Gala includes:

"Our annual event is a great way to bring people together to celebrate our veterans and support their new chapter to embark on a startup or springboard into a career in tech. I'm most grateful to our generous sponsors who have supported VetsinTech, enabling us to extend our programs to reach more veterans," said Katherine Webster, Founder and CEO of VetsinTech.

The following sponsors have teamed with VetsInTech to celebrate veterans and raise money for their tech education: Adobe Foundation, Amazon, AT&T, Comcast, Constellation, Craig Newmark Philanthropies, Disney, DraftKings, InfoSec, MMI Agency, Oracle NetSuite, Resilience, Stagwell and WorkDay.

"We are honored to sponsor this year's VetsinTech Gala, while representing the larger Stagwell network," said Maggie Malek, CEO of MMI Agency. "My service in the military was life-changing in so many ways. Foremost among those were the lessons in leadership, teamwork and camaraderie I took away and continue to apply as an executive."

Malek's colleague and fellow veteran, Stagwell's Constellation CEO, Justin Lewis, expanded upon the value of the partnership. "The award-winning network of organizations that comprise Stagwell has been built on a foundation of creativity and technological innovation, so the opportunity to support Veterans and their families in like-minded pursuits represents a great illustration of our purpose in practice," said Lewis.
