Bunker Labs, the national nonprofit empowering veteran entrepreneurs, is celebrating its first year in Philly with a celebration of veteran entrepreneurship.

The Muster PHL: Big Ideas for America is happening Nov. 16 at the newly-inaugurated Pennovation Center, with Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney kicking things off.

“This year’s program will bring together hundreds of participants and partners for a full day of veteran entrepreneurs showcasing their businesses, and an Idea Lab from leading business and military leaders,” the event invite reads.

The Muster nabbed sponsorship from JPMorgan Chase. It’s bringing to town a host of entrepreneurs, authors and speakers for a full day of panels and fireside chats. Authors Chuck Newhall, a venture capitalist and writer of Fearful Odds, and David Silverman, CEO of CrossLead, will both be speaking and signing books (100 attendees will have a chance to nab one of the books at no charge).

“The Bunker Labs Philadelphia team is excited to showcase the tremendous veteran innovation happening right here in Philadelphia at our upcoming Muster Event,” said Joe Witte, Bunker Labs Philadelphia’s program director. “Our cohort has made great strides in their businesses, and their stories of sacrifice, both in business and serving our country are awe inspiring. We encourage you to attend the first annual Muster.”
