About Us

One mission, many partners

Next Level Veterans is Indiana’s statewide effort to attract veterans to the state and provide exceptional support throughout the transition process. This public/private partnership is made up of a variety of state agencies, nonprofits and employers that all share a part of this task.

This effort is an enduring effort and we have ambitious plans. If you are a veteran seeking connection, employment or any other service please let us know and we will do our best to help. If you are an employer or nonprofit interested in being a part of this movement, please reach out as well, we would love to work with you.


Founded by a veteran of the global war on terrorism, INvets helps transitioning service members, veterans and spouses take advantage of the huge demand for veteran talent in Indiana. We bring together major employers throughout Indiana who value the skills and experience gained through military service. These companies are looking to recruit veterans to fill thousands of high-paying positions across Indiana, and are often willing to provide veterans with the necessary training to begin rewarding careers that can lead to six-figure earning potential over time.

INvets is a partner of the state’s Next Level Veterans initiative which brings together public and private organizations to recruit, employ and connect discharging military personnel to Indiana.

If you are a military veteran looking to transition into the civilian workforce, INvets can help you take the next step.
