Veteran Capital is a train and place company building talent bridges between large military installations and hubs of innovation and entrepreneurship. We are investing the Human Capital of Veterans in early-stage startups and technology companies through 12 week immersive fellowships and targeted placement.

Transitioning from the military into startups, tech, and entrepreneurship is a logical career progression. 12 weeks on the job while you're still on Active Duty may be all you need to translate your skills and experience in uniform to your next challenge.

Hiring Veterans without specific industry experience and giving them 12 weeks of training and development is an investment worth making. The attributes and leadership experience you want on your team and in your culture, they have.

Timothy Horan

Co-founder

Tim commissioned out of West Point and served eight years in the Army - notably as an Aide-de-camp in the 10th Mountain Division and a Company Commander in the 101st Airborne Division. Upon transitioning from Service, Tim leveraged the Army Career Skills Program and joined GoldenKey, a venture backed startup. As COO, his emergent leadership focused on product management, people ops, and enterprise sales. Tim is the American Underground Veteran In Residence.

Brian and Tim grew up together in Burnt Hills - Ballston Lake, NY where they learned the value of hard work, trust, and community. Their life experiences thus far led them to Veteran Capital. They are motivated by mission, and the belief that doing well comes from doing good. As they say, Tim is the “Veteran” and Brian is “Capital” and together they are “Veteran Capital.”
