BenchOn has been nominated to be part of the Sage Power 50, an inaugural collection of businesses that is a unique showcase of 50 leading veteran-run or owned businesses from across Australia, the UK, US, and Canada.
Nominated for leadership and determination to succeed, the Sage Power 50 is a unique collection of testimony from veteran entrepreneurs on how they built their business against the odds. The Sage Power 50 reveals the challenges, sacrifices and tough decisions that will underpin the transition into business for many veterans, as well as the advice and insight that helps to reshape service honed skills into the world of entrepreneurship.
“We are extremely honoured to have been selected to be part of the Sage Power 50,” Tim Walmsley, CEO of BenchOn said. “It’s great to see what the veteran community is achieving in business all in one place, it’s very inspiring.”
BenchOn was included in the Sage Power 50 along with other innovative, veteran owned, Australian businesses including BCT Solutions, Mirragin Aerospace Consulting, Major Freedom and StevTech.
“We’re proud to be part of the vibrant, veteran owned business community, and excited to share this recognition with our former Defence colleagues and business compatriots,” Angus Heatley from BCT Solutions said. “The Sage Power 50 goes to show that the skills, knowledge and experience you develop in your Defence career are highly valued in the private sector and can help achieve great things in business.”
“Every single story in the Power 50 is undeniable proof that when barriers are removed that prevent millions of veterans from living their fullest life after service—it isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s sound business,” Debbie Wall, VP Sage Foundation, said.
“We believe that with tailored support, mentoring and early intervention, a new generation of veteran led businesses could unleash a wave of talent and innovation across the global entrepreneurial community.
“Together with our nonprofit partners, we are committed to helping more veterans secure a brighter future.”
“I really hope this inspires other veterans in the future to do great things,” Walmsley added. “BenchOn will continue to do our part in supporting the veteran business community and help not only our Defence Industry to thrive, but also our Defence community.”
