The Cohort connects you to other entrepreneurial minded veterans on the same path, and teaches you how to leverage skills learned in the military to succeed in business. As the saying goes, "It takes a village."

Bunker Labs was exactly what I needed to get going and get on track for my successful invention product. Trying to negotiate the business startup, development, and/or growth, without the Bunker Labs, the advisors, and engaging entrepreneurs in the class, would have been like trying to find the tracks in the complete dark.

Bunker Labs added value to my current business and prepared me for the launch of a new venture. The practical applications of the content covered as well as the thoughts, feedback, and ideas from the bunker community will benefit me for years to come

I have worked in and around startups for many years. The information presented during the cohort was helpful and insightful, regardless of your experience level. The interactions with other cohort members was thought provoking. Bunker Labs is a wise investment of time for any entrepreneur.

Having already received my MBA at Vanderbilt, Bunker Labs Nashville was on point with the guidance they provided veteran entrepreneurs. They went further than educating though, connecting veterans to resources and mentors, which takes the innovator and idea to the next level of success.
