About Us

Venture Surplus introduced top-notch customer service to the Army Surplus industry in 2016.

 
Venture Surplus was started in a small Colorado basement with a desire to bring the highest level of service to the men and women serving in our US Army. Since then, we have grown significantly. Of course, we serve everyone else, too!
 
Gone are the days that you have to search endlessly through a bin of surplus gear, we have everything listed cleanly and plainly on our user-friendly site. Say goodbye to the “ARMY SURPLUS” sign over droves of cheap Chinese knock-off military gear. Venture stocks genuine issue surplus, and lists the NSN of every single item when available.
 

Hello all,

I’m Jeffry.

As the founder of Venture Surplus, I like helping soldiers and veterans get the gear they need. I love working with my team of veterans, providing authentic surplus. In the few hours I’m not working, I’m probably out climbing a mountain with my Fiance or skateboarding.


Hi! Im Lucas.

I was medically retired from the US Army after 8 years as a Forward Observer. I started working here two years ago after I got out of the US Army, and I am the Warehouse Manager as well as part owner. If I’m not at work you can find me enjoying the outdoors or working on my truck. I enjoy whisky too much and grill some pretty mean steaks.


Hi! I’m Rosa.

My professional background is in administration and management.  Upon graduating from college, I became a management team member for a growing women’s clothing store.  Later I took the administrator for a microfilming company. 

I have five children whom I homeschooled off and on for about 20 years, two grandchildren who are the light of my life and a wonderful husband with whom I’ve done life for over 30 years.  I have enjoyed being on the Venture team for over three years, supporting my team members in the administrative area and managing our ever growing inventory.


Hi my name is Codi.

I served just over nine years in the ARMY as a forward observer, and yes, I used to and still work with our highly trained warehouse manager here at Venture Surplus, Lucas. It is an honor to work here at Venture Surplus, still supporting many individuals who have volunteered to protect and defend this great country. If you are ever here in Colorado Springs, you can find me on my 2017 Road Glide, ripping the streets with some throttle therapy or whipping up a home-cooked meal and learning new recipes.


Hello, I’m Ross.

I am the resident nerd here at Venture Surplus. I do our web development, systems design, data architecture, and anything that involves tech nerdom. I am proud to be a part owner of Venture Surplus.

I am also a popular online music teacher, known as Ross the Music Teacher. When I am not working, I am playing music, skateboarding, or hanging out with my lady.
