Cloud Co-Op Spotlights VETS2CLOUD: An Apprenticeship Program Creating New Careers For Veterans

Founder and U.S. Navy Veteran David Franklin Partners with Salesforce’s VetForce Program to Mentor 10,000 Veterans

Cloud Co-Op--a Registered Salesforce Consulting Partner providing Salesforce business consulting services for clients wishing to extend their cloud capabilities--spotlights VETS2CLOUD, a Veteran’s Apprentice Program that brings veterans into a mentoring program at Cloud Co-Op once their deployments end. Developed from his own experience as a veteran, founder and CEO David Franklin’s mission is to create a Co-Op of Salesforce professionals under one umbrella. VETS2CLOUD gives veterans a start in the essential work of a Salesforce administrator, business analyst or project manager. VETS2CLOUD accepts veterans who have completed Salesforce training and certification, which is free in the VetForce program, and then coaches and provides them with work.

Franklin states, “It’s a win-win scenario. Cloud Co-Op’s clients receive top notch consulting at a fair price and veterans get on-the-job mentoring from seasoned Salesforce consultants.”  
“Cloud Co-Op and the veterans’ mentoring program has changed my life and brought me so many new opportunities,” said Eric Wilson, U.S. Army veteran and Active Reservist.

“I feel privileged to be working alongside one of the first 500 certified Salesforce Administrators. David Franklin has allowed me to grow exponentially in Salesforce consulting due to his industry experience, coaching, mentorship, and weekly warrior training sessions,” remarked Ken Nuehs, U.S. Marine veteran and consultant.
