That was an awesome event! Walking away with tons of new contacts, potential hires, and new ideas. Thanks for adding me and getting me funded to come out.

I think everything went great and it seems like a excellent place to start and grow these types of relationships for the future.  If there is ever anything I can do to help you out or if you need anything on my end feel free to reach out and we can try to keep a solid network alive.

Since the event, I’ve gotten: 3 phone calls. 2 were introductions that will lead to phone interviews. I cannot thank you enough!


PHILIP

Thanks for letting be a part of the first Elite Meet.  It was a great experience.  This is going to become something big.  Keep up the awesome work you are doing!

MARIO ROMERO

FORMER NAVY SEAL, COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY, NASA HOPEFUL

Thanks a bunch. It was a great event, and I actually got connected to one of the head astronauts on the selection board through a contact I met at the event.

EM1 Post-Event Survey Comment

John and Jordan did an exceptional job setting the atmosphere for the veterans and the companies represented.  Not only was the entire event results driven, it wasn't watered down at all.  This was a TIER 1 operation from start to finish and I would gladly endorse any other venture these two embark upon.

EM1 Post-Event Survey Comments

Elite Meet provided tangible results and immediate opportunities! I'm so grateful for this opportunity.
