De'Andre is our City Leader in Baltimore leading the efforts to establish the official Chapter! De’Andre B. Wells SGT. US Army (Ret.) served as an NCO in the US Army, 5th Special Forces Group. More than his role as the CEO of AGX, he is a thought leader that has demonstrated expertise and leadership in the federal marketplace and is dedicated to ensuring that military and veteran small business participants receive ‘real-time’ market-based information and access to real opportunities.Bunker Brews is designed as a monthly event. Bunker Labs supports all entrepreneurs in the veteran community to include military veterans, military spouses and family members. We support these entrepreneurs throughout the journey of starting a business: from the idea stage to the growth stage. Wherever you fit in the local entrepreneurial ecosystem, whether you are a veteran entrepreneur, a local investor, a local co-working space, a potential mentor to Bunker Labs companies…etc. – the best way to get involved with Bunker Labs is to attend a Bunker Brews and meet your local city leader.
One of our mantras at Bunker Labs is “you’ll be what you see.” One of the many reasons why more veterans are not becoming entrepreneurs is that they don’t know all of the options available to them. After World War II and Vietnam, veterans returned home and started everything from shoe companies (Nike) to shipping companies (FedEx).
Veterans today are just as ambitious and innovative in entrepreneurship but their stories aren’t being told. We want to find and tell their stories.
Bunker Labs was started by veterans who got out of the military and started their own business. As such we understand the unique challenges associated with the transition process combined with the difficulty of starting a business. We have compiled and curated the best entrepreneurial training from the brightest minds in the field into three distinct phases of entrepreneurship.
Our Launch Lab Online course for new entrepreneurs is open to anyone in the veteran community anywhere in the world. The Veterans in Residence program offers 6 months of free co-working space to 10 veteran companies in 17 cities (currently) and our CEO Circle program offers the next stage of programs for veteran companies looking to grow.
Whether you are exploring a new career path after active duty service, starting a business or growing your business—building your network is critical.
Bunker Labs invites veterans, business leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, and subject matter experts to get plugged into their local entrepreneurial ecosystem through our monthly Bunker Brews meet ups in each of our chapter cities. Currently in over 30 cities around the country, Bunker Labs also offers the veteran entrepreneur community access to a national community as well!
Launch Lab OnlineLaunch Lab Online gives you tools you need to make your idea a reality. This all-online educational platform is a gamified, interactive way to get an entrepreneurship education – from anywhere in the world, on your time, at your own pace.
Veterans in ResidenceFor veterans and military families who have started a business, the WeWork Veterans in Residence program provides veterans space, services, and a community they need to find their tribe and create their life’s work.

This group has a separate set of needs from those in the ideational phase, and the CEOCircle operates to serve those needs
