Event description

Description

Bunker Labs RDU and The Research Triangle Park Foundation of NC would like to invite you to attend our December 8th launch event which will be taking place at The Frontier. During the event you will have the opportunity to hear more about the program from Todd Connor, Bunker Labs Founder & CEO; Bob Geolas, President & CEO of the Research Triangle Park Foundation of NC; COL (RET) David Sutherland, Chairman of the Easter Seals Dixon Center; Dean Bundschu, Executive Director of Bunker Labs RDU and several of our partners who will be supporting the program. You will also have the opportunity to meet with many of the veteran entrepreneurs who will be participating in the program.

The mission of Bunker Labs Raleigh-Durham, with the support of the RTP Foundation, is to transform RTP into the center for veteran entrepreneurship. Bunker Labs RDU is backed by a national support network of business incubators, led by Bunker Labs Chicago which is headquartered at 1871. Bunker Labs RDU is a 501(c)3 non-profit, that identifies, qualifies and equips high-performing military veterans and supports their entrepreneurial ventures. In alignment with The Bunker’s unique entrepreneurship education curriculum, highly qualified subject matter experts serve as instructors, mentors, advisors, investors and advocates.

With the launch of Bunker Labs RDU, The Frontier is fast becoming a center for veteran excellence and innovation. Organizations like The Army Research Laboratories, Blackstone Entrepreneurs Network and the UNC/NCSU Bio-medical Engineering program all call The Frontier home. In addition to working with these organizations within The Frontier, Bunker Labs RDU will tie into organizations like Groundwork Labs at The American Underground, HQ Raleigh, and UNC Systems in order to connect veteran entrepreneurs to first class resources and support throughout the community and state.

One of the biggest reasons Bunker Labs has been able to grow and support so many veteran startups across the country is because of our partners like Wintrust Financial, Freeborn, DLA Piper, Comcast, Deloitte, the Robert McCormick Foundation and the Bob Woodruff Foundation. Given our states veteran population, military installations, veteran business community and business climate, we feel Bunker Labs RDU has the unique opportunity to become the hub for veteran innovation and entrepreneurship. To turn this vision into reality we will need the support of the local business community, so the purpose of our launch event will be to give business and community leaders the opportunity to meet the leadership of Bunker Labs and hear firsthand about what we are doing to support veteran entrepreneurs and businesses here in RDU, across the state and nationally.
