BUNKER BREWS PROFILE SERIES
Brandon Labelle, Founder of Alpha Corps
Why do you attend Bunker Brews?
I’ve attended these events to make new connections. Bunker Labs at its core seems to revolve around helping veteran entrepreneurs. So, no matter how different our business ventures may be, we all are at these events to support each other. It’s a great vibe and energy that’s created. I always leave the events even more motivated than when I arrived.
Have you made valuable connections at the events?
Yes, I’ve made many connections. I was invited to my first Pressure Test event from a connection I had made with an individual who had been through the program already. It was exciting to be a part of watching these entrepreneurs pitch their businesses and left me with strong desire to move forward with my own ideas. The event provided a platform for me to actually discuss my own business idea and gauge the responses as well as gather helpful feedback. I’ve remained in contact with a few of the people I met that night.
Have any of the events sparked an idea that you’ve since pursued?
The events have led to conversations that helped nurture the idea and brand of the business I’ve been developing.
How many Bunker Brews (or other Bunker Labs networking events) have you attended?
I believe that I’ve been to four events so far including a Pressure Test event where I was pitching my own idea.
Founder, Brandon Labelle and a bit about him:
"My lifelong passion for fitness, firearms, self defense, and healthy living helped me excel during my active duty military career. It allowed me to lead many Armed Forces Members in surpassing their personal and career goals while achieving unprecedented mental toughness. That journey led me to seek a higher education within the world of Business, Exercise Science, and the Firearms Industry to hone the skills and experience required to be successful in helping people change their lives. Everyday presents another opportunity to help others become more confident, healthier, stronger, and better equipped to take on life's challenges, whether they be physical or mental."
