Welcome to The Local Buzz, your inside scoop on San Diego’s tech scene. Keep up to date on our Fresh Brewed Tech website.
While San Diego may have its own tech veterans of the early digital age, our strong military-based local economy supports a significant amount of programs to help transitioning military service people find their inner entrepreneur. The Navy, for example, hosts its own at sea pitch competition, the Athena Project , while UCSD has created a program at Camp Pendleton for the Marines, Startup Battlefield 101 , and the UCSD Rady School of Management has the Veteran Ventures program. The EDC and San Diego Military Advisory Council (SDMAC) have also created a program to assist Defense Innovation -focused startups.

Are you a military veteran founder? Drop us a line at and tell us what you are up to, and thank you for your service!
