After launching our Dallas-Fort Worth Chapter of Bunker Labs in November, we’re kicking off 2020 by introducing as many veteran and military spouse-owned businesses and startups as we can to the Dallas Entrepreneurship Ecosystem and showcasing as many Entrepreneurship Ecosystem resources to the military community as possible. You don’t want to miss this!
This event is part of Bunker Brews, a monthly meetup where the Bunker Labs community, including veterans, military spouses, and civilians, comes together to network with subject matter experts, investors, thought leaders, and more in an environment focused on growth and development.
This event is for you if…
1. You’re interested in meeting more like-minded, action-oriented entrepreneurs in a fun, casual setting.
2. You’re interested in getting involved in the local entrepreneur community.
3. You’d like to learn more about companies being created by veterans in our community
We have one goal here: to foster an ecosystem that helps people progress in their career and get people hired!
This is a networking and educational group that is actively focused on improving the strategy of job seekers (active or passive) to help them step up their game! We also partner with recruiters to help facilitate a better hiring system.
Join us for a night of networking and pitches. You’ll hear 5 Austin based start-ups pitch their product for 99 seconds!
Founders Live is an unforgettable happy hour competition sweeping the country where up to five handpicked companies take the hot seat, with only 99 seconds to pitch their company and describe their value proposition in front of an eager audience. After the pitches and audience Q&A, the crowd will vote on a winner who will not only receive an award, but recognition from the crowd and also the opportunity to talk more about their product or service. So bring your friends and coworkers, grab some food and drink, get to know your local entrepreneurs and vote for what you think will be the next big thing… built in Austin

Q&A Session: 7:00-7:30
This meetup is for active founders, investors, and leaders who don’t buy into the frantic hustle that’s common in the startup world these days; people who believe there’s a better way to do business. The three rules inside this meetup are:
1) Profit over Scale
2) Long Term Wins over Short Term Gains
3) Community Matters
Each month, we’ll meet and discuss real stories from the trenches — wins, losses, and lessons learned — that somehow touch on these ideas.
This is not your average stitch & bitch, and there are no paid sponsor spotlights. This group is focused on sharing real, insightful, first-hand experience that people can apply tomorrow, while building connections that can last a lifetime.
Join now if you’re onboard, and together we’ll continue to build reputable, profitable, sustainable businesses that give us more than just gray hair.
Join other small business owners to network and discuss the biggest issues facing small businesses today.
Join the Connected Commerce Council (3C) for lunch to share your stories in a roundtable discussion with state and federal policymakers. You know what it takes to start and run your business, how important the right tools and resources are, and how the right – or wrong – public policies can affect your business.
Too often policymakers at every level and all types talk about small businesses rather than speaking to small businesses. Now is our chance to help them understand the challenges small businesses face, the opportunity of digital tools, and the potential of new business models in the digital world. This is the time and the place to share your concerns about potential policies and regulations.
Lunch will be served.
