Bunker Labs was excited to launch its 35th chapter last week under the leadership of former Navy Nuclear Officer, Andrew Castrodale and Marine NCO, Justin Dues. The event took place and veteran-run Sugar Creek Brewing Company, where over 100 people came out to celebrate the launch. Participants heard from Thom Ruhe, President and CEO of NCIDEA; Siobhan Norris, Military Liaison and Program Manager for UNC Systems and Brian Hamilton, founder of Sageworks and the Brian Hamilton Foundation.
Overall over 25 local entrepreneurial, veteran service organizations and corporate partners came out to show their support as well. Special thanks to partners like NCIDEA and the Brian Hamilton Foundation who provided grants to help fund the expansion. Shout out to TFX Capital for also helping to sponsor the launch and other local Bunker events.
The Charlotte team with the support of an amazing community is looking forward to helping veterans, military spouses and members of the military-connected community start and grow their businesses within the ecosystem rich environment that Charlotte has now become.
