June Winner: OMNA
| StreetShares Blog

By StreetShares on July 10, 2015

Entrepreneurship is about creating financial freedom, and we want to help our fellow veterans make it happen! That’s why we created the StreetShares Commander’s Call Veteran Business Award.

This month’s winner is OMNA.  OMNA is a Veteran-owned business that has created a tourniquet leash for surfers—enabling them to not only maintain their surf boards, but also be prepared to stop arterial bleeding in the event of a shark attack. In light of recent events, this is an awesome and innovative product we’d love to see surfers everywhere adopt.

OMNA’s Story
OMNA Founder Carson Henderson is a U.S. Marine Corps veteran who came up with the idea for his product while he was on a surfing trip in Costa Rica.

OMNA’s mission is to revolutionize surfing, water sports and any sport or recreation that could benefit from their products by eliminating the “what if” factor.

 “On behalf of the entire team at OMNA, we would like to express our deepest thanks and appreciation to the StreetShares team. This $5,000 Commanders Call Award will help further OMNA’s mission to save lives from sharks and other hazards in and out of the water.”
