Don David Wilson has been credited with decades of experience in the franchising industry. Mr. Wilson launched his first company, Fran-Mark Corporation, later to become FranCap Corporation, the corporate entity also known as Franchise Capital Resources Fund, in 1964. FranCap was initially founded to meet the capital needs of businesses operating within the franchise system of marketing. Don David Wilson assisted his attorney-of-record in gathering and submitting documents that would lead to the creation of the nation’s first franchise laws, passed in California in 1971. Since then, Mr. Wilson has assisted in the formation of more than 200 national and international franchises that include Car Care USA, Fax World, Mia International, Monroe Bradley Publishing, and Lube Pit Stop.

In more recent years, Mr. Wilson has founded companies such as Netword, an Internet search technology firm he guided through new technology patent applications.
