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.
