The vision of Veterans Investing was born through the experiences of CEO Christopher Fontaine’s military service in the Marine Corps.
Chris conducted multiple tours in Iraq as a Marine Bomb Dog Handler and saw first hand the challenges his fellow veterans faced while transitioning back into the civilian work force.
This was specifically evident with the disabled Veterans, many who had suffered injuries that affected their occupational opportunities once their service time was complete. Roughly 20-22 US Veterans commit suicide per day; the divorce rate of returning veterans is more than three times higher than the national average. Often these situations are a result of Veterans feeling depression and a lack of direction or hope due to their diagnosis.
As a successful Real Estate Investor, Chris knew that 75% of Investing is conducted with a laptop and a smartphone and done from almost anywhere with an Internet connection. Chris envisioned teaching and mentoring as many of his fellow Veterans as possible into the world of Real Estate Investing.
With this vision, Chris created “Veterans Investing University.” The FREE online community is about teaching and mentoring our Veterans in becoming successful Real Estate Investors and eventually starting their own business.
Chris goes on our nations military installations and speaks directly to veterans in the process of transitioning back into the civilian workforce. Chris informs Veterans of the unique opportunity at Veterans University and how they can join our community of investors.
Chris saw the opportunity to combine the efforts of Veterans University with our IRS approved Veterans Investing Opportunity Fund. Having trained, aggressive investors specifically targeting the best deals within our nations Opportunity Zones, is realizing our Investors the highest returns imaginable.
The Veterans Investing Opportunity Fund gives our Investors the most significant tax break in our nations history, all while securing them the absolute highest returns possible. We do this while also teaching and mentoring our veterans and greatly enhancing the revitalization efforts within distressed communities.
