From our National Funders

Veterans are well-positioned to become successful entrepreneurs and business owners because of the skills, training, and experience they’ve gained during their time in the military. Our firm is proud to support Bunker Labs and its work to provide veteran entrepreneurs the resources they need to succeed and help drive our economy.

CEO of Commercial Banking, JPMorgan Chase

USAA has been a proud supporter of Bunker Labs since 2015. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, entrepreneurs face additional challenges, and our military community is uniquely prepared to lead in times of challenge. We are pleased to support Bunker Labs’ work to provide new initiatives and resources for military-connected entrepreneurs and their families as they lead their communities in responding, rebuilding, and rebounding from the effects of the pandemic.

Senior VP of Corporate Responsibility, USAA

At Google for Startups, we know that accessing the right resources at the right time is crucial for a startup’s success. We also know that life in the military means developing skills that uniquely position this community to succeed as founders. That’s why we’re proud to support Bunker Labs, whose programs, resources, and robust community are foundational in helping the military community achieve their entrepreneurial dreams.

Nicole Froker

Partnerships Manager, Google for Startups

Since 2018, we have raised $2.1 million for Bunker Labs to help veteran entrepreneurs start and grow their own businesses. This year, we are proud to support Bunker Labs’ Breaking Barriers in Entrepreneurship Workshop Series, which helps entrepreneurs from under-represented populations, including Black, female, Latinx, and Asian American communities, launch and grow their businesses.
