Operation American Dream: From Battlefield to BossMilitary veterans with entrepreneurial dreams are invited to compete for start-up money to open their own business. Signal 88 Security’s contest, Operation American Dream, is in its second year and will again provide veterans with an opportunity for success.

According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, veterans own 2.4 million, or approximately one in 10, small businesses. It also notes that in the private sector, veterans are 45 percent more likely than those with no active-duty military experience to be self-employed.

Between April 1 and May 15, 2014, Army and Air Force veterans are invited to submit a video explaining why they want to open their
own business. Not sure what to include in your video? Click here

Four videos will be selected as finalists – two from Army veterans and two from Air Force veterans. The winning submission will be decided through a public vote on Signal 88 Security’s Facebook page on Thursday, May 22, 2014. The contestant with the most votes will receive $5,000 to start his or her own business, or $10,000 if he or she chooses to open a Signal 88 Security franchise.

Marine and Navy veterans, stay tuned. Your chance will come in October 2014.

 



The contest is closed. Thank you to all of our participants!
