Special operations veterans are among our nations greatest untapped entrepreneurial assets. They are highly effective innovators who routinely lead teams of soldiers through logistically complex and physically demanding scenarios. We believe that their resiliency, adaptability, and communication skills are just as applicable to the startup world as they are in combat situations.
Our custom-tailored programs, led by the Special Operators themselves, are a hybrid of physically rigorous field exercises and tactical strategic thinking scenarios aimed to teach entrepreneurs how to run their startups like a small tactical unit. By helping to design and run these courses, our veterans are armed with the know-how necessary to repurpose their skills for entrepreneurship and are empowered to build strong connections with like-minded leaders in the private sector. In this way, our courses are designed to be two-way knowledge exchange platforms to benefit the entrepreneur and veteran equally.
We believe that integrating these two worlds provides an extraordinary opportunity for mutually beneficial impact and growth.
Resiliency The essence of resiliency is the ability to endure uncertainty and to thrive in the face of adversity.
Situational Awareness Whether in the field or in the office, being fully aware of the team in relation to the surroundings and environmental mood is imperative to operational success.
Adaptability Special Operations personnel learn to rapidly adapt, overcome, and follow through to their objective despite adverse conditions and unpredictable circumstances.
Composure Developing the skill set and frame of mind to maintain equilibrium in times of heightened stress and pressure will give you an edge over your competition.
Self-sufficiency Possessing the knowledge and skills to thrive in survival scenarios instills a sense of confidence that affects every facet of life.
Empathy A team that operates humbly and without ego will be more successful.
