November marks National Veterans and Military Families Month, and a former Air Force Captain has launched a new veteran mentorship program to help veterans transition into the professional landscape.

Michael Ebel served in the Air Force for 17 years and now is a successful tech entrepreneur who wants to help other veterans as they transition into civilian life, which can be difficult for many.

Ebel enlisted in the airforce right after he graduated high school, he spent 17 years in the service and eventually moved on to a career in tech,

“It’s been a bit of a diversified career journey, as it were,” he said, “Currently founder CEO, before that I was a global project manager at Meta in their ops machine learning group… before that, I was getting my MBA at Berkeley studying entrepreneurship and technology. Before that, I was in management consulting at PricewaterhouseCoopers in their private equity group, and before that, I was a captain in the US Air Force”

Ebel credits his post-military success to the years of mentorship he received during and after his time in the Air Force,

“The Air Force, the military has a great amount of resources to be able to support its veteran if you kind of know where to look and how to be able to use those to effectively transition,” he said.

Ebel is now paying it forward, creating a new veteran mentorship program through his app Atmosfy, which is designed to provide opportunities to entrepreneurial veterans seeking guidance on their journey to success,

“We think it’s a great opportunity to give you exposure, to give you relevant experience, and to sort of help you build a strategic plan into technology and get a chance to help out with the atmosfy mission of supporting local businesses globally,” said Ebel.

The program offers $1,000 in scholarship money, a one-year mentorship alongside Michael that focuses on navigating the transition from military careers in tech as well as coaching sessions and real-world experience scaling a tech startup with the Atmosfy team.
