About DARE Venture Group

The Mission

To provide the warfighter ecosystem with innovative, dynamic capabilities for its most pressing challenges by leveraging unique talent and game-changing technologies.

The Solution

DARE is a small, surgical problem-solving team – much like a special operations unit – focused on the criticality of warfighter capabilities and emerging technologies. Our team members merge the best of two worlds: top government expertise and a small-business operating environment that fosters innovation. DARE attracts top talent customers and supports them to be unencumbered by traditional government boundaries. We have the luxury of molding our solutions around the challenges customers are presented with, and don’t declare victory until they do.
