Shout Out to Founding Father’s Collective

by | Jun 1, 2023 | RESILIENT COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS | 0 comments

Shout Out to our local FOUNDING FATHER’S COLLECTIVE, owned by Grant Quezada, Army Veteran and Jesse Burke, Navy Chaplain and Veteran. My son, Grant, was invited by our U.S. Representative, Eli Crane to speak before men and women of Congress in Washington, DC this past week. There were 4 Veteran Owned Businesses represented. All of them were sensational! If you want to here Grant’s introduction, it begins at the 21:00 minute mark. All of them spoke about the transition from the military to civilian life, in particular to entrepreneurial, small businesses. They thanked the SBA profusely but also let them know that although their programs have been helpful, they are still fighting for 2 things in the business world where the SBA and bloated bureaucracy miss the mark: 1) Investment Capital and 2) Lending Credit. For all of these businesses they are still looking for operating capital to take their businesses to the next level!

Very Informative and Very Inspirational. I salute them for their sheer-dogged determination and testifying before Congress for CHANGE.
