Bunker Labs, a national non-profit which empowers military veteran entrepreneurs, hosted Skender Foundation's Builders' Board for an evening of networking and a talk by Bunker Labs CEO Todd Connor at its headquarters in 1871 at the Merchandise Mart.
This year’s Summer Eclipse charity partner, Bunker Labs is a program built by veteran entrepreneurs for veteran entrepreneurs. Their objective is to launch and accelerate veteran-owned businesses and create a new forum for high-performing veterans to meet and collaborate. Headquartered in Chicago, Bunker Labs has helped veterans start 120 different businesses across the United States thus far.
"The Builders’ Board was honored to join Todd Connor and Bunker Labs for such a fun evening," says Brian Skender, a Builders’ Board member and Skender Foundation director. "We are grateful for the effort that Todd made to take us through his amazing journey as an entrepreneur and to learn more about the mission of Bunker Labs. It was an inspirational evening for the 40+ people who attended to say the least."
"We are thrilled that Builders’ Board was able to join us," says Todd Connor. "In many ways, our missions align in that we constantly strive to move the next generation of young professionals forward by helping to give them the tools and resources to do so."
