Our Story

We started Hope For The Brave Foundation because we have a collective passion for leadership, mentoring others, and giving back. With Kevin being a veteran of the US Army, focusing our passion on a specific group of individuals, veterans, made perfect sense to us.  Once we identified that there were gaps in the process of transitioning from the military to civilian life, we knew that we could help.

Since starting the foundation, we've been overwhelmed by the support of our friends, family, and business connections that want to help support our veterans. We are so excited to offer our entrepreneurship programs to all veterans that need it.

Meet Our Advisors

If you've been a part of any business, you understand the importance of having the right team. In building out the foundation, we've been fortunate enough to have an incredible group of business leaders supporting us every step of the way.

Diversity is the most critical component of building the right team of advisors. We've assemble a group that has diverse backgrounds, experiences, opinions and ideas. Together, this network is ultimately what will make Hope For The Brave Foundation a success.
