(October 4, 2017) – SOSi International LLC (SOSi) announced today a new partnership with Dog Tag Inc. a non-profit organization based in Washington D.C. that offers entrepreneurship education and real-world business training to veterans with service-connected disabilities, as well as the spouses and caregivers of service-disabled veterans. A major sponsor of this week’s Army Ten-Miler (ATM), SOSi will showcase Dog Tag Inc. at the ATM Exposition Hall and Finish-Line Hooah Tent Zone. Three Dog Tag Fellows will also join SOSi’s running team for the race.
Dog Tag Inc. offers a five-month program that combines classroom instruction at Georgetown University’s School of Continuing Studies with leadership development and hands-on business rotations at Dog Tag Bakery in Georgetown, Washington D.C. Graduating fellows earn a Certificate in Business Administration from Georgetown University and receive training in accounting, management, communication, financial management, marketing, business policy, and entrepreneurship.
“Dog Tag Inc. is one of the most innovative veteran assistance organizations I’ve ever come across,” said Julian Setian, president and CEO of SOSi. “Small businesses are critical to our country’s health. As an entrepreneur who has grown a small business into a large business myself, there aren’t words to describe how excited I am to support Dog Tag’s mission to empower veterans with the skills they need to succeed in business.”
SOSi’s corporate responsibility program provides financial and employee volunteer support to a variety of non-profit organizations that serve SOSi’s customers and the local communities where its team members live and work, including: Cornerstones, USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore and the Association of the U.S. Army.
“Dog Tag is proud to partner with SOSi,” said Meghan Ogilvie, CEO of Dog Tag Inc. “In addition to providing critically-important funding, the SOSi team has generously donated their time and talent to advance our work. Together, we are empowering service-disabled veterans, military spouses, and caregivers to discover personal and professional fulfillment in the civilian world.”
