Stephen G. Barr Accepted As Veteran In Residence At Bunker Labs
El Lodge Taos Founder to Serve a Six-Month Residency
TAOS, NM, USA, December 29, 2022/ EINPresswire.com / -- El Lodge Taos founder Stephen G. Barr and Bunker Labs announce that Barr has been for the next cohort of Veterans in Residence, which kicks off in January 2023.
Veterans in Residence, a partnership of WeWork and Bunker Labs, is a six-month, early-stage business incubator that provides veteran and military family member entrepreneurs with coworking space, local entrepreneurial community, and a national business network.
Veterans in Residence is offered in cities nationwide, as well as through a virtual cohort for interested entrepreneurs without a local Veterans in Residence. Strong candidates are military veterans and military family members who have formed a legal business entity or startup and generated some revenue, but not more than $100,000.
“Entrepreneurs who are past the ideation stage and are looking for a small cohort to challenge, inspire, and support them are in a great position to leverage the community, resources, and accountability of Veterans in Residence,” said Bunker Labs’ Director of Entrepreneurship, Ann Cardona.
To date, the Veterans in Residence, a Bunker Labs and WeWork partnership has had 950 veteran-owned businesses participate.
Program alumni have also gone on to win pitch competitions and accolades including the grand prize in the Bob Evans Heroes to CEOs pitch competition (worth $50,000), first place in the Austin FC Dream Starter Competition (worth $100,000), and funding from Google for Startups Black Founders Fund.
“Entrepreneurship levels the playing field: It is just as challenging for a PFC as it is for a General Officer,” said Cardona. “Entrepreneurs in our community respect one another for having the courage to enter a profession that is not often mentioned in the service and which is needed now more than ever.”
