Meritorious has developed a Community-as-a-Service feature found nowhere else in the veteran ecosystem. Nonprofits and corporations can build centralized, virtual communities within our member portal to improve communication, information sharing, and collaboration, while creating a catchall resource for veterans to explore programs, connect with professionals and advocates, attend live events, access on-demand workshops, and more.
- Clean UX/UI, intuitive backend, easy to learn and manage.
- Control who accesses community and which content is private or public.
- Import, export, and analyze user data. Easily identify most engaged users.
- Standard community modules include live feed, member directory, events aggregate, forum, blog, partner showcase.
- Custom modules available.
- Email campaigns, segmentation, and analytics.
In addition to aggregating events nationwide, Meritorious hosts signature events using a three-prong approach, to create multiple access points, greater engagement, and more meaningful impact. As participants move from 1.0 to 2.0 to 3.0, the impact is more individualized.
1.0 events are national, virtual networking events for veterans and military spouses, on topics like real estate investing, cybersecurity, and running for Congress. 2.0 events are regional in-person events that intentionally bring together military-connected executives and transitioning veterans. 3.0 events are invitation only mentorship events.
The Meritorious member portal further enriches the experience, enabling participants to connect before, during, and after events, and allows brands and organizations to expand activations.
Mentor Connect is an on-demand, Professional to Professional (P2P) mentorship module on the Meritorious member portal.
Unique to other mentorship programs, Meritorious members can both mentor and find mentors.
A dashboard enables mentors to review and accept mentee requests. One-hour calls are a minimum requirement.
Mentor Connect is not just a mentorship module on our platform. It is also virtual and in-person events.
Meritorious hosts in-house mentorship events, as well as curates mentorship events to help nonprofits expand their services for transitioning veterans and military spouses.
The Small Business Hub connects entrepreneurs with other veteran and military spouse owned businesses, resources, advisors, investors, and potential partners, while showcasing their businesses, fundraising goals, and current projects. Profile your business in our business directory, access discounts through our Marketplace (future launch), and leverage thousands of accredited investors through our partner, Localvest, a SaaS solution designed by veterans for veterans to help entrepreneurs raise capital faster.
Members of Meritorious can browse career opportunities through the member portal, as well as themselves post jobs, internships, apprenticeships, volunteer opportunities, and more. Hiring managers can tap into Meritorious to directly post career opportunities, interface with a high caliber talent pipeline, and connect with transitioning veterans.
The Meritorious app includes geolocation technology to create a smart, connected veteran ecosystem with more contextual touch points across the user journey.
Our app provides users with timely communications, including push notifications, based on who they are, where they are, and what they might be needing.
Whether an executive travels on business or transitioning veterans return to their home of record, the app makes it easier to locate members and resources nearby. Geolocation also provides a more integrated experience for networking events, Mentor Connect, and brand activations.
