Ohio veteran receives $10K entrepreneurship award

Nick Ripplinger, founder of Dayton startup Battle Sight Technologies, was awarded the Disabled American Veterans’ Arthur H. and Mary E. Wilson Award last week. The award recognizes superior performance as part of the nationwide Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities Program & includes $10K in prize money.

“This award recognizes a disabled veteran who has taken on the challenge of starting his or her own business,” DAV National Commander Dennis Nixon said. “We know employment is one of the most important factors in a veteran’s successful transition out of the military, and we are excited to help provide a resource for Mr. Ripplinger that can serve as inspiration for others to pursue their own entrepreneurial goals.”
