Tonight we enjoyed business networking and brews veteran style at American Underground in Durham per special event hosted by Bunker Brews. This event featured a special themed story around "Green Beret to Startup Founder" as former Army Special Forces Officer, Tommy Sowers, shared his journey from the military to academia to running for office and ultimately starting a disruptive company. This evening was packed with learning about the parallels among these unique paths and journey in life and business.
Here is a recap on some of the top wisdom points shared:
A monthly meet-up or happy hour where the Bunker Labs community — veterans, military spouses, and civilians alike can network with subject matter experts, investors, thought leaders, and more — creating a robust environment for growth and development.
What is Bunker Labs RDU?
Bunker Labs—a national non-profit—was created by military veterans for veterans to start and grow businesses. 25% of transitioning service members want to start a business and they need places inside their community where they can connect with the people, resources, and support they need to start and grow their businesses. Bunker Labs’ network is designed to fill that space. Learn more about Bunker Labs RDU programs for veterans at http://bunkerlabsrdu.org/programs-for-veterans/!
