The founding story for any company is comparable to that of a great sports story: It typically features inspiring mentors, classic fumbles and recoveries, and of course, a team that has your back through it all.

That’s why today’s episode of The Journey is a little bit different. Rather than showcase the success of one small business entrepreneur… you’ll hear from three:

  • Kate Perez, Merivis Co-Founder & Executive Director
  • Hector Perez, Merivis Founder & Past Board Chair
  • And Joe Castro, Merivis Co-Founder & Current Board Chair

Kate, Hector, and Joe are the founding team of Merivis, a nonprofit veteran service organization that trains veterans and military spouses for competitive careers in tech.

The trio has always been determined to build something that makes an impact, but there’s one thing they could have never predicted: That Merivis would be the catalyst for building a community almost as close as family.
