Welcome back to another episode of 🎙“I’m a Millionaire''. So Now What?”🎙
I always strive to introduce you to members of the Self Made Nation with super interesting stories. 💥This week’s a doozy!💥
Glenn Cowan is a retired Squadron Commander, 🇨🇦 Canadian Special Operations Forces. 🇨🇦
He’s also a venture capitalist moving the needle on investing, using principles of Special Ops planning and risk mitigation. 👏👏👏
As he puts it, “A special forces organization is probably the best incubator and accelerator for identifying, validating and proving new technologies.”
His company, ONE9 Investments, is named after his radio call sign when he was with Special Ops. 📻📻📻
Which is pretty cool, if you ask me.
Glenn Cowan founded ONE9 Investments while serving as an Assaulter Officer in Canadian Special Operations Forces. As a Squadron Commander, Glenn specialized in leadership command, and strategic planning, and successfully brought those skills to a venture capital fund that uses the principles of special operations planning and risk mitigation.
A graduate of McGill University, The Army Operations Course, The Special Operations Assaulter Course, Canadian Securities Course, and Ivey's Executive Leadership programme, his education, along with extensive military experience, affords Glenn an unconventional perspective and application to the investment battlefield.
He is also an active mentor in Operation Entrepreneur’s mentoring program. Operation Entrepreneur is a program of Prince's Trust Canada that provides veterans and transitioning members of the military community with the tools they need to start and grow successful businesses.
