Steve is an interesting case for this show because he himself is not a veteran.
After starting and exciting a few companies, Steve turned into an investor. Through that process, he teamed up with a Navy veteran who showed him the power of veterans as entrepreneurs. That led him down the path to start investing in startups and search funds, with a particular focus on investing in veterans.
Steve and his business partner also started Search and Acquire, a nonprofit focused on connecting veterans who want to acquire a business with sellers.
