Derren Burrell is #MadeForKnoxville.

Derren was in the United States Air Force for 21 years. When it came time to transition out of the military, he knew Knoxville was the best community for his family — it was a place he could both make a difference in and feel at home. 

Derren knows that “veterans make great entrepreneurs,” which is why Veteran Ventures Capital is dedicated to helping them get there. Derren is eager to help those like himself achieve their business goals by providing them with the right resources — and he plans on making Knoxville one of the best places to do so. 

“There’s so many people here who really want to make a difference.”
