Brittany Laughlin: Bringing Military Talent to the Tech Community With Incline

July 2, 2013

Brittany Laughlin was born a geek. No dolls for Laughlin; she delighted in blowing stuff up with chemistry sets and analyzing critters under microscopes. That sense of curiosity did not abandon her as she got older. In fact, she applied it to the technology industry.

Inspired by Laughlin’s analysis of the military population returning from war, Laughlin founded Incline in New York City. Her main priority was to fill the talent gap in the technological workforce while helping veterans secure relevant jobs and skill sets.

The military provides her with hard-working and self-motivated individuals who are eager to learn her carefully curated technology curriculum that focuses on in-demand tech skills. From her perspective, she can give military veterans the skills they need to be successful while also helping the tech community at large.

Even though Laughlin was recently hired by Union Square Ventures, she will keep Incline running hot for all those who have served our country.
