#12 | TFX Capital: Can Veterans Fuel the Next Silicon Valley Boom?

Episode Summary

Brandon Shelton loved jumping out of airplanes as an airborne officer. After leaving the service and working on Wall Street, Brandon is now co-founder of TFX Capital which backs high performing veterans who are domain experts tackling nasty problems. Veterans make up 0.5% of the population but start 10% of the small businesses in America – making veterans an attractive demographic to invest behind. In the 1960s, US government funding helped create the first boom in Silicon Valley. TFX Capital is helping to create a new investment ecosystem around veterans that will perhaps create the next golden age of interaction between Silicon Valley and the US Military.
