You're a tech start-up with no money but you need an office. Coloft in Santa Monica is emerging as a solution, offering shared work spaces, office equipment — and valuable intangibles. "It's sort of like a real-life social network," said Coloft co-founder Cameron Kashani. "We've got the printer, scanner, fax, Wi-Fi, fridge, microwave, coffee. But that's not the reason people come here. People come here because of the community, because of the other people that are here. " And, on any given weekday, a walk into Coloft offers up a taste of the L.A.-area's start-up scene, with entrepreneurs working side by side, sometimes offering each other advice and occasionally even collaborating on projects.

"I was even turned down by McDonald's," said the 29-year-old San Diego native. The military is known for developing leadership, adaptability, loyalty and teamwork. But Butcher said when he tells employers he needs time off to see therapists for post-traumatic stress disorder and a brain injury, they don't call back. "They think you are mental," he said.
