Launch Lab is Bunker Labs’ 16-week program to help your business, validate and scale your business concept, generate revenue, and develop a path towards sustainability. We also include leadership, adaptability, and values in our education program. As part of our program, we will assign mentors to meet with you weekly, and also work to make critical introductions on your behalf.
You will be assigned a mentor and you will have the opportunity to speak/meet with them weekly for one hour for the duration of the 16 week program.
Additionally, you can access subject matter experts via our Slack channel to get input on various topics that are relevant to running your business (fundraising, legal, accounting, benefits, sales, etc).
We meet weekly for approximately 3 hours to discuss the following: company updates, topic review, featured cohort company case study, and a guest speaker (on weekly topic).
