Jon Reed – IA MED
Why do you attend Bunker Brews?
As a small business owner, Bunker Brews has been invaluable for connecting creating a sense of community for me as I’ve transitioned from active service and it has offered me a massive network of potential clients and vendors. It’s also given me unfettered access to tested business executives that provide tremendous mentorship and opportunities for my own business.
Have any of the events sparked an idea that you’ve since pursued?
Absolutely. I think every time I attend an event I leave with a new prospect. Whether it’s someone to do my video production, a partnership with a non-profit, or the incorporation of a new technology into my workflow, Bunker Brews always keeps my mind percolating.
How many Bunker Brews (or other Bunker Labs networking events) have you attended?
I’ve attended three Bunker Brews.
How would you describe your business and the stage it’s at?
