The 2022 Bravo cohort continues to grow due to high demand, receiving over 800 applications
Bunker Labs is a non-profit organization providing meaningful connections that lead to opportunity and capital access for Veteran and military spouse entrepreneurs to launch and grow their own ventures. Since launching the Veterans in Residence program in 2018, 89% of participants reported accelerated business growth, and 44% increased their run-rate revenue.
“We have the best community,” said Bunker Labs CEO Blake Hogan when asked what led to their success. “Our Veteran and military spouse entrepreneurs, despite being relative strangers when they join their cohorts, have a shared background that allows them to trust and feel safe bringing up their real fears and struggles with their business. That enables us to address their challenges effectively, help them close any skill gaps, and empower them to take their venture to the next level.”
The success of the program has led to 56% growth since the last cohort launch, and Veterans in Residence has expanded access to those without a local city cohort by adding 5 virtual cohorts. Applications for the next cohort, 23A open September 1, 2022, and close September 30, 2022.
Veterans in Residence is a partnership with Bunker Labs and WeWork. For updates on the application windows, fill out the interest form: https://bunkerlabs.org
