COO, Veterans Security Operations

“It was imperative to seek funding so we were able to better equip our veteran workforce with the tools needed to be successful and update our fleet of vehicles so those on patrol are fulling protected.”


Veterans Security Operations was growing organically and had not taken on any debt, but they needed an infusion of capital to make some changes. The firm realized their armed and unarmed security personnel needed additional protection and training to meet the demands of the job. As well, growth capital was desired to meet company goals of expanding nationally and offering competitive pay to ensure retention.


Founders First Capital Partners invested $550,000 in Veterans Security Operations through a term loan in December 2022, giving them the capital needed to update their fleet of security vehicles, using retired police cars, and boost morale through additional security training.


Since Founders First invested, Veterans Security Operations has been able to phase in more secure vehicles and held training. Despite the COVID-19 challenges many businesses faced, the company flourished and capitalized on market need with plans to grow 25-30% in 2023:

Offering competitive pay

Held security training

Updated fleet utilizing retired police vehicles
