Tactivate meshes first response, entrepreneurial and military veteran expertise, operating principles and strategies to conduct disaster readiness, response and new venture launch activities in the US and abroad

Deploying entrepreneurs and Special Operations veterans in disasters and business

When you combine military Special Operations veterans and international disaster response experts with a seasoned venture hardened team of experience designers, installation artists, hospitality gurus, bootstrap entrepreneurs, and cultural experts, there is little that can't be achieved in short order despite the operating environment or challenge on hand.  

Special Operations Innovation

Cultivating capacity in a disaster zone to execute effective response and recovery operations is akin to launching a startup. Disparate groups need to be brought together quickly to address challenges with minimal resources. The same teams we deploy to solve challenges in disasters we put to work to reimagine how new ventures are launched. 


At Tactivate we apply combined expertise from the military veteran, first response and entrepreneurial ecosystems to inform new venture launch and strategic partnership formation efforts for private sector and NGO clients.


In disasters Tactivate deploys funds from these activities to support volunteer expeditionary entrepreneurial capabilities to conduct proactive whole community emergency readiness, response, and economic stability operations in the aftermath of large-scale disasters around the world.       

Puerto Rico Response

This video demonstrates the approach Tactivate takes to identifying, supporting and amplifying local last mile capacity to solve challenges in disaster zones. Solutions are deployed that solve acute challenges while putting future proof systems in place to change the local dynamic from reactionary and dependent to proactively ready for future emergencies. In the aftermath of hurricane Maria Tactivate formed a multidisciplinary working group that turned a $33k investment into $4M in local economic stimulus while solving food and water security issues.
