How a Vietnam Marine turned a $70,000 loan into a 300+ million dollar company

November 9, 2016 / Share:

At Bunker Labs Nashville we are humbled to share the experiences of our service members who are returning home to lead innovation in the American economy.  These men and women have served across the globe and are now a ready for a new deployment at home.

It is that same drive that will lead innovation in our economy just like our WWII Veterans did when they returned home, and almost half of the nearly 16 million went on to own or operate a business. Today, we have the smallest military but the most well equipped. The one thing standing between them and the next breakthrough is professional networks.  

At Bunker Labs Nashville our mission is to inspire, educate, and connect the next greatest generation of military entrepreneurs, or The Frontline Generation, as the title of Marjorie K. Eastman’s book, a Bunker Nashville company, calls them. These men and women have what it takes and we at Bunker Labs are honored to be part of the mission. 

Enjoy these lessons from the front lines via Dr. David Black, a Marine who served in Vietnam, who took a $70,000 loan and turned it into a company worth over 300 million dollars.  Dr. Black is the Founder and CEO of Aegis Labs, and here he shares about doing the right thing, leading from the front, and not asking your team to do anything you are unwilling to do yourself.

Happy early 241st Marine Corps birthday and happy early Veteran’s Day.
