Greater Washington’s secret entrepreneurial weapon | The Washington Post

While we appreciate the sacrifice and personal commitment members of our voluntary military make for all of us, we don’t hear much about how national service is a crucible for developing entrepreneurial skills.

Last week I asked several veterans about their businesses and how their service affected attitudes towards entrepreneurship. The similarities were remarkable even though each start-up is very different.

Blake Hall, founder and chief executive of ID.me identified the most important skill for effective entrepreneurs that soldiers have in spades: “the capacity to rapidly make tough decisions with limited information and limited resources in a chaotic and uncertain environment.”
