On a mission to be the change in people’s lives, Venture Mentality sets out on a mission to inspire people to pursue their bucklists and chase their dreams. The lifestyle brand, which doubles as a podcast, aims to help people improve their mindset, fitness, relationships, and overall lives. The clothing line is designed to exude the mindset and culture of the brand itself.
Venture Mentality was founded and is run by an 19-year-old Jacob O’Connor. The recent high school graduate hosts the company’s podcast and has interviewed over 130 successful and influential people in the country and abroad. He has sat in conversation with ESPN’s anchor Jay Harris, NFL Hall of Fame Hockey Player Chris Pronger, and the founder of Lions Not Sheep apparel, Sean Whalen.
The young founder balances his time between running his own business and pursuing his education. Nonetheless, Jacob approaches both aspects of his life with a vision for success. He was exposed to the value of hard work at a young age through playing basketball.
Jacob wants Venture Mentality to be an avenue for him to share what he learned with other young, aspiring dream chasers. Jacob shares that “everyone who identifies with the brand is dedicated toward working on their goals and improving daily. Venture Mentality isn’t just a brand, it’s a lifestyle.”
Jacob pioneered the impactful culture carried by Venture Mentality. The clothing line produces designs with messages of initiating to create a community of like-minded individuals. The brand started with its classic T-shirt design. Soon after, it expanded to producing hats and other products as well. Venture Mentality possesses an aesthetic that is modern, minimalist, and classy, all at the same time.
Sometimes, society perceives a person based on how he dresses. Venture Mentality understands the need for people to look good without sacrificing comfort. It ticks all the boxes when it comes to practicality, quality, durability, and style.
“When we were children, we were told to shoot for the stars. As we grew up, we were told we needed to be more realistic. This brand is for those who still dare to dream,” Jacob said. Venture Mentality envisions to boost careers and improve the state of mind of entrepreneurs and individuals. The messages printed across its merchandise is geared toward building morale and a community of goal-driven individuals.
The apparel is dedicated to encouraging its wearers to pursue their dreams, regardless of their current situation. Venture Mentality aims to symbolize the mentality of a person that wants to be the best in their fields.
