Matching Military and Military Spouses to Project-Based Internships

OweYaa is entirely built around passion. We feel, regardless of skill level or past experience if you have the passion and the persistence to chase your goal you will eventually hit it. Right now we a dispersed team, working from different corners of America and still managing to pull our product and vision together. We are looking to bring together a small team in NYC to continue to build cohesiveness and tap into the networks we have built OweYaa for. We have nothing but passion to build a great community where each user can depend on one another to help them complete their projects and obtain their goals. With that in mind, we want to assemble a team that can get behind that vision.

What We're Building

OweYaa is a project-based virtual internship platform for the military community. We aim to help companies grow fast with untapped military talent. OweYaa aims to address the hurdles veterans face when they leave the military which results in long periods of unemployment rather than rewarding careers. Two of those significant hurdles are due to lack of civilian job experience and lack of connections in the business world. With OweYaa's virtual internships-- active duty service members, veterans and military spouses can connect with employers and build marketable resumes with civilian job experience. Our algorithm matches long term business goals to veteran career goals. OweYaa helps companies to focus on their core business needs and allows them to vet prospective employee hires.

OweYaa’s stands out as one of the few social enterprises in the country tackling military transition into the civilian job market and adding veterans to the tech diversity equation.
