HOSTED BY CASEY ARMSTRONG ● 1 HOUR
57% of military spouses do not work outside the home - this inspired two founders to build a remote manufacturing network to give them jobs and purpose.
Inspired by the greatest women’s movement of all time, R.Riveter was founded on the American ideal that opportunity and innovation, when combined with determination, will create positive impact. From two women in an attic to a nationwide network of Riveters, the company embodies the time-tested mantra of success through hard work, while providing travel-hardened military spouses the opportunity to achieve and elevate.
Co-Founders of R. Riveter
New military spouses Lisa Bradley and Cameron Cruse found themselves asking the question: why is it so difficult to find meaningful employment? Military spouses provide strength to service members, yet their sacrifices often come with an economic and emotional price tag - lack of employment. After charging two thousand dollars each to their credit cards, Lisa and Cameron purchased a commercial sewing machine and a small supply of leather and canvas. At first, it was a two-woman operation, but as demand grew, so did the team. Today the company is made up of a network of military spouses, known as Riveters, scattered across the country.
