Sage, a global technology business and Premier Partner of the Invictus Games Sydney 2018, today announces the launch of the Sage Power 50 – a unique showcase of 50 leading veteran run or owned businesses from across Australia, UK, US, and Canada.
Nominated for their leadership and determination to succeed, the Sage Power 50 is a unique collection of testimony from veteran entrepreneurs on how they built their business against the odds. Launched in the run up to the Invictus Games Sydney 2018, Sage believe that these compelling stories will educate the business community and inspire the next generation of veteran business leaders.
Over the next five years, one million service members will transition out of just the U.S military alone; with one in four wanting to start their own business. The Sage Power 50 reveals the challenges, sacrifices and tough decisions that will underpin the transition into business for many veterans; as well as the advice and insight that helps to reshape service honed skills into the world of entrepreneurship.
Debbie Wall, VP Sage Foundation, said: “Every single story in the Power 50 is undeniable proof that when barriers are removed that prevent millions of veterans from living their fullest life after service—it isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s sound business.
“We believe that with tailored support, mentoring and early intervention, a new generation of veteran led businesses could unleash a wave of talent and innovation across the global entrepreneurial community.
“Together with our nonprofit partners, we are committed to helping more veterans secure a brighter future.”
