Veterans are Highly Entrepreneurial


While the military does a fantastic job training leaders to solve difficult problems, it does not prepare most of them to overcome the many business challenges they will face as they grow.  Typically, for most entrepreneurs the challenge is not the idea, nor the beginning stages, but sustained execution and scalability.  Money, people and strategy are common weaknesses which constrain their ability to grow.  As a result, many of our nation’s highly capable service members, with fabulous business ideas and great firms employing Veterans, run into a wall trying to break out to the next level.

Among many other positive attributes, Veterans possess an enduring set of values – courage to do the right thing, selfless service, a sense of duty, respect, and most importantly, integrity.  They also have real world leadership experience and think clearly under stress.  They are mission- and team-oriented, highly disciplined, and they know how to win!

— Carl Schramm, President & CEO of Kauffman Foundation [the largest institution focused on entrepreneurship]

Our Firm

Patriot Growth Capital, a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), was formed in 2017 to fill a void in the marketplace for the growing number of Veteran businessmen and businesswomen needing advice, access to institutional capital and mentoring; while at the same time fulfilling our burning desire to give back to those who have freely sacrificed so much for our country.
