Experience and Program Success

Veteran Labs takes tremendous pride in being a national leader for collaboration and partnerships to serve military veteran entrepreneurs.  Our partnership strategy and collaboration models have been pursued in other cities and states and adopted by Bunker Labs (Chicago), Patriot Boot Camp (Boulder) and others.

Veteran Labs has been very successful in negotiating reduced program fees and attracting in-kind donations, discounts and wholesale vendor rates for veteran-entrepreneurs and their businesses.    It has been these successful partnerships and strong relationships that have allowed Veteran Labs to build a portfolio of innovative programs for veteran-entrepreneurs.   

What Veterans are saying

"I participated in the Veteran Labs “Innovator Academy” program and have worked closely with Michael Ertmer on a weekly basis for almost two years. The access to subject matter experts, introductions to sponsors/vendors, peer-to-peer collaboration with the fellow veterans and entrepreneurs, and introductions to potential customers has been vital to my business."
David Geisler
CEO - Rapid Imaging Technologies LLC
"I enthusiastically support the work being done by Veteran Labs Wisconsin and Michael Ertmer. I have worked with Michael on a variety of projects and the support he and his team have provided me has been critical as I have developed new products that needed marketing and intellectual property consulting."
