Operation American Dream Again Gives Veterans Chance to Be Their Own Boss

April 03, 2014 // Franchising.com // Military 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. Submissions will be accepted online at www.signal88.com/OperationAmericanDream.

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.

About Signal 88 Security
