USAA launched an initiative that will underwrite 50% of Geekdom membership fees for military veterans, active duty military, and military spouses who sign up as new members of the downtown coworking space.
“The agreement we now have with Geekdom makes sense not only from the emerging tech perspective but as a means to best support veterans with their entrepreneurship and startups in the tech sector,” Tim Brown, vice president of IT innovation research and development at USAA, told the Rivard Report. “There may even (be) an opportunity for USAA to partner with some of them in the future.”
Those interested in a Geekdom membership can sign up online via MilTribe, which then verifies the potential member’s military status quickly before reconnecting the applicant back to Geekdom to complete the process.
USAA has committed $60,000 for military member fees at Geekdom.
