Bunker Labs DC and JPMorgan Chase Host The Muster DC to Showcase Local Veteran Entrepreneurs

Press Release – Washington DC | February 23, 2017: Bunker Labs DC, a 501(c)3 organization committed to veteran entrepreneurship, will host The Muster DC on February 23, 2017, to showcase and empower local veteran entrepreneurs. The experience, part of the Muster Across America Tour sponsored by JPMorgan Chase & Co., is designed to connect veterans in business, empower the Washington D.C. entrepreneurial ecosystem, and foster growth, knowledge, and success.

The event will feature expert talks and panel discussions, a pitch stage where veteran entrepreneurs can compete for the title of “top startup,” and a post-event networking reception.

Bunker Labs DC Executive Director Emily McMahan remarked, “We know this experience will be a great opportunity to gather our local veteran entrepreneur community for one day to connect and share their ideas, experiences, and to also showcase Bunker Labs DC as a great resource.”

Following World War II, roughly 50 percent of returning veterans started a business. Today, approximately 25 percent of post-9/11 veterans state they want to start a business, yet veterans own less than 10 percent of small businesses. Veterans in the Washington D.C. region interested in starting or growing small businesses have access to resources, programs, and curriculum at Bunker Labs DC that is designed to translate military experience into starting sustainable and scalable businesses.

In partnership with JPMorgan Chase, the Muster Builds America Tour will travel to 14 cities across the country to showcase veteran entrepreneurs, empower local entrepreneurial ecosystems with large-scale events, and serve as the launching point for local Bunker Labs chapters.
