Transitioning out of uniform can be tough, whether at the end of 25 years or after one enlistment. However, those skills & experiences gained while in uniform will benefit you the rest of your life.

Canada doesn’t track how many veterans become entrepreneurs; but, in the U.S., veterans are 45 per cent more likely to own/start a business. Entrepreneurship is an attractive option for many leaving the military, the problem is that when veterans want to start a business their business network may be small.

We're here to help. Veterans helping veterans.

Rise Above.

We're a veteran run business, so we know what it's like to try to get up and running post-service.

We want to be part of the transition veterans take into their civilian careers as entrepreneurs & business owners. Whether you're in need of our expertise, looking to run your idea by someone, or looking to network, we'd love to hear from you.

First Response Health & Safety

Started by a Canadian Forces veteran who saw a gap in First Responders physical protection against Occupational Stress Injuries. First Response chose altitude to design a logo that first responders could connect with and told a story of "protection."
