Fifth Annual NVTC Foundation CXO Auction Raises Over $54,000 for the NVTC Veterans Employment Initiative

On February 12, NVTC hosted its fifth annual NVTC Foundation CXO Auction at Convene, Tysons Corner. The event, sponsored by top sponsor AWS and Transformation Systems Inc., raised over $54,000 for the NVTC Veterans Employment Initiative (VEI), which connects Veterans and military spouses to employment opportunities and provides support to member companies in their efforts to recruit, hire, train and retain qualified Veteran and military spouse employees.

During the event, attendees enjoyed hors d’oeuvres while bidding on and connecting with 53 C-level executives from leading NVTC technology companies via a smart phone bidding app. The bidders competed electronically to win one-on-one meetings with regional and industry leaders, and some auction packages went beyond a meeting to include outings like golfing, indoor skydiving and major league sporting events.

Winning bidders are guaranteed a meeting with their auctioned executive within 12 months, during which they can gain advice and perspective from C-level executives and pitch future plans.

In a special bonus auction, NVTC auctioned off a special handmade wooden American flag courtesy of Veteran owned and operated Flags of Valor. VEI Executive Director Steve Jordon announce an upcoming partnership with Flags of Valor where a portion of the sales proceeds in 2019 will go to the NVTC foundation in support of the VEI.

Thank you to the winning bidders and thank you to all the auctioned executives for committing their time and expertise on behalf of the VEI!
