Experience the Military Entrepreneurial Edge

Bunker Labs is a national network of entrepreneurs founded by military veterans to help other veterans start and grow businesses. The Muster Across America Tour 2018 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 Bunker Labs Minneapolis chapter activities.

The Minneapolis Muster is all about connecting you with opportunity. If you are not a veteran you will gain the military entrepreneurial edge. If you are a veteran you will gain the network to quickly grow your venture.

This year marks the inaugural North Region Muster, hosting City Leaders from all over the upper mid-west. These are military veteran entrepreneurs firmly rooted in their local communities. Each leads a successful business and understands first-hand the benefits of the military entrepreneurial edge.
