Hello, Ryan

First of all, thank you for your service.

I would encourage you to contact Holly Rockweiler, the CEO of Madorra in Portland, Oregon.

Holly is a graduate of Stanford and utilized the Stanford Ignite program to launch her start up.

She probably can give you some insights and guidance.

You could request some informational interviews to learn more about their experiences. Here are some tips on how to request and conduct these interviews:
