“I was medically discharged. I was severely depressed, I had clinical anxiety and I thought who wants to employ this broken person?”
- Lee Harris, Founder, White Horse Cleaning Services.
How do you build a life after the battlefield? For many former service people, their advanced resilience, discipline, and drive is perfectly suited to the task of setting up a business from scratch.
We wanted to reveal the challenges, sacrifices and tough decisions that underpin the transition into business for many veterans; as well as the advice and insight that has inspired many veterans to reshape their service honed skills into the world of entrepreneurship.
That’s what the Sage Power 50 is all about: inspiring the next generation of veteran business leaders.
Launched to celebrate the Invictus Games Sydney 2018, the Sage Power 50 is a unique showcase of veteran run or owned businesses.
Just by telling us their story, our brilliant Power 50 have helped Sage to build an invaluable collection of testimony on how they built their business against the odds.
Contributors were nominated by leading military non-profits in countries who have hosted the Invictus Games; the UK, USA and Canada, alongside this year’s hosts – Australia. Every participant was nominated for their leadership and determination to succeed.
