About Kyle Buckett
Kyle Buckett is a retired Navy SEAL, CEO of KAYGWA Inc. and One More Wave, and founding Partner of Fortis Enterprise Partners.
Kyle joined the United States Navy in 1999 and although most of his career was spent in the Middle East, he has been deployed to over 20 different countries and served with 5 separate SEAL teams. Kyle had the opportunity to be one of the few senior enlisted leaders with Ground Force Commander experience in multiple theatres of armed conflict. His unique leadership style has helped shape high performing teams across a variety of industries.
Kyle has been instrumental in the development of numerous Navy SEAL founded small for-profit and non-profit businesses. For example, during his last deployment in the Navy, one of his fellow teammates was shot numerous times in the leg, unfortunately resulting in a high leg amputation. Kyle knew he had to leverage his “entrepreneurial spirit” to help. Kyle teamed up with One More Wave’s founder Alex West and is now leading the company to provide wounded and disabled veterans with customized surfing equipment and helping veterans get back into the water. It is Kyles’s hope to help veterans get back into the water and decrease the veteran suicide rate.
Kyle was recently named one of Starbucks 2017 “UpStanders” for his courage to make a difference.
The SEAL Teams have been his career, his life, and his family. In 2018, Kyle decided he was ready to transition to his next chapter and spend time in the U.S. with his wife and children. It is Kyles’s dream and passion to invest in forward-looking people and technologies.
