The Next Ridgeline
From Special Forces to Silicon Valley
November 3, 2017 
We kindly invite you to join us for the Green Beret Foundation’s Bay Area Chapter inauguration.

Filling a critical void in our area, the Bay Area Chapter will provide transitioning Special Forces soldiers with direct access to “The Next Ridgeline,” a program designed to prepare them for a successful life in America’s most promising companies.

Our event will feature engaging speakers, an evening of cocktails, and an opportunity for you to meet some of America’s finest soldiers, the Green Berets.

Please join us at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis’ spectacular View Lounge, rising 39 stories above the coastal skyline, from 5:30pm-11pm on November 3rd, 2017.

We look forward to seeing you!
Imagine your competitive advantage if you had access to a source of world-class talent: Innovators who build and enhance your organization’s sense of community, conditioned to achieve maximum effect with minimal resources, who remain composed in ever-changing landscapes. These are the inherent qualities that Special Operations Forces (SOF) veterans—former elite military personnel who have spent years building communities and enabling positive outcomes—bring to your table.

The Bay Area, where the planet’s most innovative thinkers shape their environment, presents a perfect fit for former Green Berets. As SOF veterans, Green Berets are a perfect fit for any community, excelling as master negotiators and diplomats. We will showcase the value these outliers provide to their communities, the organizations in which they will continue to serve, and the positive addition each can make to your company.

Please join our inaugural event, to hear from top SOF veterans who have achieved extraordinary success launching businesses and leading private sector enterprises. Find out how your support will further enable transitioning Green Berets to continue on their successful trajectories into the most challenging and intellectually stimulating environment in the world—our very own Bay Area.
