IVMF's Bunker Labs Ambassador Program Welcomes New Class for Veteran Entrepreneurship

SYRACUSE, N.Y., Feb. 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Bunker Labs, now a part of Syracuse University's D'Aniello Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) is proud to announce our 2024 cohort of Ambassadors have taken the watch in 29 cities across America. These 61 service-minded entrepreneurs help veteran and military spouse entrepreneurs connect with opportunities and solve problems facing their businesses. They recently finished their initial training during a three-day event in Austin, Texas, and are ready to support the veteran and military spouse entrepreneurs and business owners in their community.

Ambassadors make a 12-month commitment to help explore, map, and develop resources within the local business ecosystem on behalf of our community, helping veteran and military spouse founders launch and grow their businesses.

"Ambassadors are positioned to be a key community business contact for all our program participants, and sometimes, a much-needed mentor and friendly face," says Barb Carson, Managing Director of Programming for IVMF. "Our Ambassadors know the ins and outs in the local business landscape, and their ability to serve as guides to our program participants and help connect them to the right contact or opportunity at the right moment makes taking that next step a reality."

If you're a veteran or military spouse entrepreneur, introduce yourself to your local Ambassador, and get better connected to the local business ecosystem. We also encourage members of the entrepreneurial support community as well as veteran entrepreneurs to reach out to their local Ambassador. Let them know what you have to offer veteran and military spouse entrepreneurs, be it capital access opportunities, mentorship, B2B services, or access to networks. You can find contact information for your local Ambassador on theĀ Bunker Labs Community pages.
