Tactivate combines expertise and operating principals from the military Special Operations veteran, first response and entrepreneurial communities to solve tricky challenges and to build community capacity in the private sector and disaster zones around the world.
Deploying entrepreneurs and Special Operations veterans in disasters and business
When you combine military Special Operations veterans and 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, partnerships are formed and proactive readiness and emergency business continuity strategies are implemented for our clients.
In disasters Tactivate deploys funds from these activities to support expeditionary entrepreneurial capabilities to conduct proactive whole of community emergency readiness, response, and economic stability operations prior to and in the aftermath of large-scale emergencies 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.
