Background

Dan Silvers, our Founder and Disabled Vet, understands the helplessness and hopelessness many veterans feel upon returning home from service or combat.

In 1951, as an 18 year old Marine scout/sniper in North Korea, he was badly wounded. After a year in seven different hospitals undergoing medical treatments and multiple surgeries with no rehab, he was finally discharged on his own.

Dan had no money or family support or counseling, but he did have the GI Bill. This he put to good use and became an Aerospace Engineer.

Dan applied what he learned in the Marines to adjust, improvise and overcome his difficulties and to build for himself a successful and fulfilling professional career.

In retirement, Dan has spent considerable time and effort supporting various charitable causes for Veterans.  In the process, he discovered that most job placement programs fall short in providing long-term security. Real security, especially these days, comes only with ownership in a business.

Knowing that most Veterans lack the skills necessary to operate a successful business, Dan conceived a program that would make Veterans more attractive to companies looking to expand. 

From shared acquaintences, our co-founder Joseph Leonard was introduced to Dan Silvers in 2015. After hours on the phone discussing the issues at hand, Joe envisioned a platform on which Vet Ventures could be based.

In reading more about Joe's background, you'll understand the connection.
