Veteran Capital Fellow: Alex Scholz – USAF



my name is Alec Schultz I'm an engineering officer in the United States Air Force I'm currently a business operations fellow at first as an Air Force officer and engineer I was responsible for overseeing multiple government launch missions down in Cape Canaveral Air Force Station I was essentially part of the launch operations Quality Engineer crew and we would be part of the mission assurance team that would help process satellites coming in to our launch site getting them ready for space and then eventually launching them and putting them on orbit so as an Air Force engineer and Air Force officer I see a lot of similarities between startups in the military right now I am a fellow at first which is a real estate tech company I'm currently the position of a business operations fellow I report directly to the CEO essentially what the company does is use predictive analytics and machine learning to match Realtors with people in the network or most likely to sell their homes within the next six to twelve months is to help bridge the gap between different functions within the organization and kind of understand how we can improve the processes as a whole and keep our company going the best part so far about being part of the veteran capital fellowship program is definitely being able to experience the startup culture in general that I otherwise would have not have had the opportunity to do that being able to start your network and kind of implant yourself in that area that I like to relocate to especially in the Durham area and just the Triangle region as a whole definitely has its benefits and so starting here through veteran capital was probably the best decision to start my career transition out of the military because I'm able to actually start building my network and finding my roots here in a place that I won't be finding a long-term career
