Bunker Labs, a national nonprofit helping veteran entrepreneurs, will celebrate the official opening of the San Diego chapter with a ribbon cutting ceremony and reception on Oct.17 at the West Region Muster presented by JPMorgan Chase & Co. The event is at Moniker Warehouse, 705 16th St. in East Village, 4:30 to 9:30 p.m.
Bunker Labs seeks to inspire veterans and military spouses to start their own business by providing them proper training, resources, and connections. The San Diego chapter is the 29th chapter nationwide and the third in California after Bunker Labs-Bay Area and Bunker Labs-Los Angeles. Bunker Labs is on track to have a chapter in every state by 2021.
“San Diego is the next natural expansion for Bunker Labs,” said Bunker Labs CEO, Todd Connor. “San Diego has a strong veteran population, great entrepreneurial prowess and a supportive community. We know that we can foster this great environment to help the veteran community here thrive.”
The San Diego Launch event is just one of the events of the West Region Muster. The Muster is open to the public and will include speakers, breakout sessions, networking, a pitch competition sponsored by the Ford Fund featuring some of San Diego’s veteran entrepreneurs from the WeWork Veterans in Residence Program powered by Bunker Labs. Contestants have a chance to win up to $7,500 in prizes.
