Following World War II, nearly 50 percent of returning Veterans started a business. Today, roughly 25 percent of post-9/11 Veterans state they want to start a business, and approximately 10 percent of small businesses are owned by Veterans. Bunker Labs is working to present entrepreneurship as a viable post-service opportunity. Launched in 2014 by Navy Veteran Todd Connor in Chicago, Bunker Labs helps meet the unique needs of Veteran entrepreneurs by providing training, workspace, access to investors and mentors, and a peer-to- peer learning environment.

Bunker labs is a National Not-for- profit 501(c)(3) Organization built by Military Veteran Entrepreneurs to empower other Military Veterans as leaders in innovation.

Bunker Labs provides educational programming, access to resources, and a thriving local network to help military veterans and their spouses start and grow businesses. We work to Inspire, Educate, and Connect veterans with the right resources and people locally to be successful, while also providing national tools and resources like: Launch Lab Online or our Community Mobile App to support aspiring entrepreneurs wherever they may currently live or be stationed.
