The Seattle Muster invites veterans, corporate partners and innovators to come, bring their best ideas and develop new connections and insights. Last year’s event in Chicago drew over 350 participants and won praise. This year, the Seattle Muster will bring together participants and partners for day-long events of veteran entrepreneurs showcasing their businesses, panel discussions, keynote speakers and an insight to what Bunker Labs Seattle will be doing in the coming year.

Program Elements

The Seattle Muster will be the first of its kind in the area, offering a day of events featuring the following elements:

Presented by JPMorgan Chase & Co., the Muster Across America Tour 2017 will travel to 14 cities across the country to showcase veteran entrepreneurs, empower local entrepreneurial ecosystems with large-scale events, and serve as the launching point for local Bunker Labs chapters. Many veterans transition from the military with unique skills and experiences that lend themselves to starting sustainable small businesses. The Muster Across America Tour is a catalyzing event to stand up and strengthen this expanding network of military veterans, successful entrepreneurs, and the communities they serve.
