Bunker Labs 3rd Annual Muster Across America

Bunker Labs

Thursday, May 18, 2017 from 12:00 PM to 7:30 PM

Bunker Labs, a 501(c)(3) organization committed to veteran entrepreneurship is excited to announce the 3rd annual “Muster” conference. This year we invite veterans, corporate partners and innovators to come, bring their best ideas and develop new connections and insights. Last year’s event drew over 350 participants and won praise as “the most exciting innovative veterans’ event I have ever been to.” This year’s program will bring together over 400 participants and partners for a full day of veteran entrepreneurs networking, keynote speakers, and will feature our Launch Lab where we’ll build an entire business in ONE day.

The Chicago Muster will offer a day of programing featuring the following elements:

  • Main Stage: Featuring expert talks and panel discussions on the latest business innovations and trends.
  • Technology Showcase: See the latest tech up-close and in-person. See mini demos throughout the day with a mid-day breakout session for demonstrations and hands-on activities.
  • Launch Lab: What does building a business from scratch look like? Witness the birth of a new business live as it happens!
  • Canteen: Coffee, snacks and lots of sidebar conversations throughout the day. Like any good canteen we invite people to come, relax, connect with old friends or make new connections throughout the day’s event.
  • Networking Opportunities: Attendees will have an opportunity to engage in dialogue about the day’s content and build lasting connections.
