200: Bunker Labs Chairman Doug McCormick

Doug McCormick has gone from being on active duty, to having an MBA at Harvard, to being an employee at a Wall Street investment bank, to being a private equity investor and finally now as entrepreneur. Here he shares with us the different programs and opportunities they have for veterans at Bunker Labs. Tune in!

“The vision of Bunker Labs is that every veteran in America has access to the community, the network, and the resources to realize their entrepreneurial potential.” – Doug McCormick

From the Military to Finance

Doug graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point with a degree in BS Economics. He graduated at the top of his class while serving as First Captain and Co-Captain of the Army Wrestling team.

His career in the military ultimately led him to serve in Hawaii. In the mid-90’s, he got out and went to pursue an MBA at Harvard.

And for two decades now, he’s worked as a professional investor who manages money for institutional clients. Bunker Labs is among the companies he became a part of and is enabling him to stay connected with the veteran community.

The Bunker Labs Community for Veterans

At Bunker Labs, they provide veterans with a space and opportunity to explore their potential in entrepreneurship. For this, they try to create a collaborative environment where veterans could freely grow their network and learn from various educational resources.

Challenges for the Military in Transition

Many veterans are becoming interested in entrepreneurship. There are typically two challenges they face in the transition: (1) having limited resources to start with, and (2) having a less developed network that could help open doors of opportunity for them.
