SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) October 18, 2018
GovX has partnered with Bunker Labs, the national nonprofit organization that helps veterans, active duty service members, and their spouses start and grow businesses. With chapters across the country, Bunker Labs provides veterans with the network, tools, and resources necessary to develop entrepreneurial business ventures.
GovX is the largest closed-channel e-commerce site open exclusively to members of the military, law enforcement and first responder communities. Through this relationship with Bunker Labs, GovX will provide veteran-owned brands access to 3 million engaged members and over 1 million social media followers. As a marketing channel, GovX is unmatched in its ability to connect emerging veteran-owned companies with a community that is like-minded and incredibly supportive of their own.
GovX currently works with dozens of veteran-owned brands like Black Rifle Coffee Co., Battle Brothers Shaving Co, Grunt Style, Nine Line Apparel, Original Grain, and many others, helping them grow their networks and reach new customers. Partnering with Bunker Labs provides GovX an opportunity to discover existing veteran owned brands and to assist veterans and their spouses from across all branches of the military in fulfilling their entrepreneurial dreams.
Bunker Labs estimates that 25% of transitioning service members are interested in starting their own businesses after their military service comes to an end. "Veteran entrepreneurs are unmatched in their leadership, motivation and resourcefulness. Bunker Labs helps veterans leverage these qualities in the business world and provides resources for every step of the journey," said Alan Cole, GovX CEO. "We’re excited to connect with new brands through this relationship and to put our full support behind veterans looking to begin the next chapter in their lives as entrepreneurs."
Bunker Labs is currently hosting the "Muster Across America Tour", an annual tour to cities across the U.S. showcasing veteran entrepreneurs, empowering local entrepreneurial ecosystems, and building powerful connections between the veteran community and the business community. GovX will be participating in the Muster Across America event in Los Angeles, California on October 25, which will include a keynote from NBA All-star and investor Baron Davis. Other VIP speakers at the event will include Ryan Williams, author of "Influencer Economy" and Rob Vickery, General Partner, Stage Venture Partners. This event is open to the public and is powerful opportunity for veterans who are building businesses.
