Afternoon Keynote: Dan Alarik, Founder + CEO, GruntStyle Apparel

Dan Alarik, known far and wide to vets around the nation, comes to Pittsburgh to share his story of his post-deployment venture: starting one of the coolest apparel companies for Americans.

To accommodate his family and his fellow veterans, Alarik, a former Army drill sergeant, came up with a unique idea that eventually became Grunt Style, a military-themed clothing and apparel company of which 75 percent of employees are veterans. In addition to providing a place where veterans can work together, Alarik also operates Grunt Style much the way a military infantry unit is run, with headquarters, sergeants and platoons.. www.gruntstyle.com
