Tim Hayden

Meritorious is a great forum to listen, learn, leverage and develop your network, not just add numbers. Wherever you are in your professional journey, the time you spend here will add value to it.

Tim Hayden, US Army (Ret.), Executive Officer to the Deputy Commanding General, Army Futures Command

As a transitioning veteran, this event was an awesome opportunity to have a little fun, network, and learn about what other veteran businesses are doing. This was a great platform for bringing together veteran businesses so that we can support each other!

Caleb S., US Navy SEAL

I enjoyed the fellowship, and the ability to connect with like minded veteran professionals. I would recommend to others veterans that would like to network and connect with a supportive military group.

Shabazz C., USMC Veteran, Executive

I highly recommend events like this to any veteran, transitioning or already out, to help maintain that connection to the veteran community and to help gain access to the veteran business community.

Jason F., US Army, Active Duty

Meritorious did a great job of finding an incredible venue and bringing different servicemembers / veterans together for a true executive networking event. I hope to attend Meritorious events in the future!

Ethan B., US Army Veteran, Business Owner

What a fantastic event! It was a great day of fellowship with brothers and sisters in arms. And, it was also a terrific opportunity to network with industry professionals. Thank you Meritorious Team!

Martin H., Army Veteran, Executive

It was more than networking, I came away with friends and brothers who shared similar experiences. I will make it a priority to attend the next event.

Loren P., Transitioning US Air Force Veteran

WHO WE SERVE

Our platform unites military veterans, their spouses, and the organizations that serve them.

Professionals and Executives

Business Owners and Startup Founders

Transitioning Veterans and Military Spouses

Veteran Support Organizations

Veteran Employee Resource Groups

WHY WE’RE DIFFERENT

Rather than build from the ground up to serve our veterans, we take a top down approach, bringing together successful leaders who have hiring power, the right mix of expertise and desire to mentor, and the capacity to rally their companies in support of our military.

On an micro level, Meritorious fosters business networking, recruitment, and mentorship. On a macro level, Meritorious provides organizations a cost-effective solution to continue services and engagement beyond an intervention and focus area.

HOW WE SERVE

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.
