Why CAVE exists
We believe military veterans are hard-wired for innovation and entrepreneurship
We want Colorado to be a place where veterans have pathways to become entrepreneurial & Business leaders.
We believe veterans are uniquely self-thinking, self-motivated, bold, and risk-tolerant.
The very act of voluntarily serving in the military is daring and bold, and involves an enormous amount of self-confidence, self-sacrifice and self-awareness. It’s not something one does on a whim, or because she simply wishes to fall in line and do as she’s told.
People join the military to do something wild, elite, difficult, audacious.
And they know they can’t just quit when it sucks. Which is generally quite often. Veterans are comfortable being uncomfortable.
Veterans are intrinsic risk-takers. They are comfortable venturing into the unknown. They possess a certain gumption about “figuring it out," some defiance, a little hubris, and a will to continue fighting well beyond reason.
