We had the good fortune of connecting with Jack Findaro and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jack, how did you come up with the idea for your business?
I came up with the idea for Vetted Biz alongside my brother and business partner, Patrick Findaro. We had been advising individuals on franchise and small business investments for a number of years under our other company, Visa Franchise. The majority of our clients have been foreign national entrepreneurs and investors that needed trustworthy guidance for investments in the U.S. that would enable them to apply for the E-2 investor visa. Over time, we realized that there is an information gap in the franchise market as well as overall small business market, not just for our foreign national clients but also for Americans living in the U.S. looking to do small business or franchise investments. With Vetted Biz, our goal has been to bring greater transparency to the market to enable individuals to make informed small business investment decisions with as much information as possible easily accessible to them. This is how Vetted Biz was born.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
We are very proud to have been growing our Vetted Biz platform throughout the quarantine and pandemic. In particular, I am very proud of how our team handled the disruption that our company experienced as a result of the quarantine. It has taken a lot of trial and error to get to where our company is at the moment. We are constantly iterating to figure out ways how we can improve ourselves in order to deliver the most value to our users. Ownership is one of our core values at Vetted Biz. We really strive to take ownership in everything we do at our company which enables us to see how we can improve our service.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
When showing a friend the city, I would definitely start off with the beach, which in my opinion is one of the best urban beaches in the world. Then I would encourage them to try to experience the surrounding water as much as possible, whether that is eating somewhere with great views of the bay / ocean or boating. Then at night I would take them to Wynwood to check out the art and food scene there.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would certainly like to give a shoutout to my brother and business partner, Patrick Findaro. We started this entrepreneurial quest together back in 2016. Since then we have continued to evolve and support each other throughout the years. Without him we would definitely not be where we are now as a company.
