Todd Connor is a Navy veteran and the CEO of Bunker Labs, an incredible nonprofit organization that helps veterans to achieve their dreams through entrepreneurship. Over the past couple of years, Bunker Labs has grown from their original location in Chicago, to having chapters in over 10 cities across the country. They provide support through mentorship, training, education, peer support, and even funding.
Through an innovative online platform at www.BunkerInABox.org, veteran entrepreneurs can embark on a 14 mission journey that takes them through the necessarily steps to start their business.
Recently, Team RWB has partnered with Bunker Labs in the development of our very own e-learning platform, EagleLeader.org (coming soon).
Todd and I have a great conversation about transitioning from the military and how starting a business may be a great option. We cover topics like:
- When is it the right time to leave your day job, if at all?
- How to create minimally viable product to test your business idea
- Why starting a business-to-business company is a smart move
- Thinking beyond “tech”
- …and a whole lot more
Todd is an extremely engaging and inspiring guy, and we hope you enjoy our conversation.
