Milwaukee startup aims to connect veterans to colleges!

 Home Front Alliance (based at Startup Milwaukee’s 96square coworking space) is proud to announce the launch of its state-of-the-art college-connection platform called “CollegeRecon.” After 18 months of research, development and testing, CollegeRecon is now available to those who’ve served, those currently serving and their families.

CollegeRecon revolutionizes the way Veterans view their post-military lives by equipping them with the most expansive and easy-to-use online tool in the world. This platform, which is completely free for the military, bridges the current gap between college-bound service members and colleges and universities looking to enroll these honorable men and women.

CollegeRecon also serves not-for-profit colleges and universities. There are over 3,000 live school profiles currently on the site and each is able to receive college-bound military user’s profiles at no cost and begin communicating. Colleges and universities are able to utilize the site for their own recruiting efforts by registering with Home Front Alliance as a “Patriot Sponsor” institution and searching for potential applicants.

The purpose of CollegeRecon is to foster introductions between Veterans and not-for-profit post-secondary institutions.
