Our Mission
To provide early-stage financing to ventures led by U.S. military veterans.

Entrepreneurs with military experience possess highly developed leadership skills capable of building strong, successful companies. However, these skills are often underappreciated and underfunded. Our goal is to change that, and we invest exclusively in veteran entrepreneurs. Our successful track record proves that veteran entrepreneurs can produce outsized returns. We are industry agnostic and finance veterans from all military branches.

Our Approach
We are in the trenches alongside veteran entrepreneurs.

We recognize entrepreneurial endeavors require support early on. Hivers & Strivers Capital is founder-friendly, and we leverage our extensive network to ensure the greatest opportunity for success. Beyond capital, we source key board members and advisors, provide high-level counsel from experienced industry leaders, and open doors for our portfolio companies. We bring the experts to the table.


We invest throughout the early stages of the business, from seed stage through Series B.


We provide expertise in strategic planning, leveraging our group of experienced advisors and limited partners.


We facilitate meaningful introductions that open doors with customers, service providers, investors and other strategic partners.


We believe in a team-oriented, “boots-on-the-ground approach” by helping in day-to-day execution and facilitating operational improvements.
