Bunker Labs Connects Veterans

Bunker Labs – a 501(c)(3) non-profit – is a national network of veteran and milspouse entrepreneurs dedicated to helping the military connected community start their own business. They are committed to seeing that every entrepreneur in the military connected community has the network, tools, and resources they need to start their own business.

In January 2020, the Rapid City chapter of Bunker Labs launched in Ascent Innovation – giving accessible resources to our local community and military members.

“We are so excited to bring the Bunker Labs network to Rapid City,” said Bunker Labs CEO Todd Connor. “There is such a strong community of veterans here, and we are happy to provide them with our resources, connections and insights, and be the bridge for Rapid City veterans to take their aspirations to the next level.”

Black Hills Wire and South Dakota Ellsworth Development Authority are proud to be connected with Bunker Labs – with the Rapid City chapter’s volunteers, David Kneafsey (SDEDA), Mitch Nachtigall (Elevate Rapid City) and John Schneider (Dakota Optics) leading the way.
