Ukrainian public organization “Federation of franchising development, hospitality and infrastructure” with the Kiev City State Administration (KCSA) is planning to launch a program of adaptation of the military which is called “VET FRAN” in order to help military veterans and various power structures to become accustomed to the life without the Army. Particularly, the authors of the project mention that the aim of this initiative is to help former fighters, participants in ATO to start their own business.
The program includes a set of workshops and sessions on the topic “Do not look for work – start your own business” and a series of round tables and conferences on franchising.
In addition, for the participants of “VET FRAN” the authors have developed a special training program which will help to start their own business. Moreover, the experience of this program will help to create a solid ground for the future projects.
According to the president of the NGO “Federation of franchising development, hospitality and infrastructure” Oleg Lashchuk, the program for the former security officials will be on a privileged basis, because in this way franchisors want to thank the military for their service and protection of the state.
Moreover, Mr. Lashchuk emphasized that after finishing the education the most successful graduates are expected to have partial funding as well as sponsorship initiatives of their pilot projects from companies and franchisees.
