ABOUT US

Founded in 2017, we connect elite military veterans with influential business professionals at our exclusive invite-only networking events.

Military attendees are handpicked by our CEO, John Allen, who is a decorated Navy SEAL.

Business professionals are handpicked by our Chairman, Jordan Selleck, who among other things spent 6 years in investment banking in New York City.

We measure our success by the number of jobs offered to our elite military attendees.

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.
