Sharks & Food Trucks: A Proud Week For PBC

In 2015 Patriot Boot Camp worked with 155 early stage entrepreneurs from Veteran and military spouse backgrounds. These passionate founders are building awesome technology-enabled companies with ambitions of changing the world.

Patriot Boot Camp alumni work hard and score wins every single day. This week two achievements from the PBC community made national headlines.

PBC - Sharks and Food Trucks

Fieldvine is headed to the food truck capital of Texas.

Ray and Rebecca Antonino of Fieldvine attended the 2015 Patriot Boot Camp at Goldman Sachs in New York. They have worked tirelessly to build a software platform for managing construction projects while also finding time to support the PBC events in North Carolina and Detroit. This duo has grit, vision and a keen prowess for execution.

Yesterday it was announced that Fieldvine has been accepted to the Techstars accelerator program in Austin, Texas. Less than 1% of the companies that apply to join the Techstars network are accepted. Fieldvine’s success is an incredible accomplishment for a fast-growing company.

Major Mom is swimming with the Sharks.

Angela Cody-Rouget of Major Mom attended the 2015 Patriot Boot Camp at the University of North Carolina. Angela sat in the front row at the Chapel Hill event, greeted everyone with a smile and asked awesome questions of the presenters and mentors. Angela is a dynamic leader who has built an incredible business helping families organize their lives.

Tonight Angela and Major Mom will be featured on Shark Tank seeking an investment from America’s most famous television venture capitalists! Shark Tank receives over 100,000 applications from entrepreneurs each year, and only chooses to work with the most promising companies. Angela is an outstanding entrepreneur whose relentless positive attitude is certain to be a hit with Shark Tank's investors and it's national television audience.

The next Patriot Boot Camp will be held in Phoenix, Arizona in just two weeks. We are excited to welcome this 40-person cohort of great entrepreneurs to the PBC community and look forward to publicly bragging about all of their future accomplishments!
