Tackling the unemployment rate among veterans has proven to be an ongoing challenge, with many veterans coming home to a persistent high unemployment rate, low wage scales and a mountain of debt. Too many are not welcomed by banks for small business loans because of their lack of credit or assets and at the beginning, no cash flow. However, certain franchises are inexpensive to get into, which veteran Larry Colley found out when he acquire an air conditioning service business after he raised just $4000 using  crowdfunding  and soon after hired six people. This is surely one of the best ROI for job creation on record.

Event organizer Ruth Hedges says, “Crowdfunding provides a convenient way for Americans to give back and to do their part to help veterans create jobs and raise capital to start their own businesses. Crowdfunding could potentially be the solution that veterans across the United States have been waiting for. Combining the power of rewards-based/equity crowdfunding and franchise ownership can open the door to a whole new world of opportunities for veterans and society as a whole.”

“Veterans, perhaps even more than others, have the discipline, heart and drive to be successful business owners, and crowdfunding can help raise funds at a time when financing is hard to come by,” continues Hedges. “For determined and informed veterans seeking to start a small business in a local setting with the help of friends, neighbors, veterans groups and a country of appreciative Americans, a well conceived dream could soon become into a reality, with a built-in customer base.”
