Building on the success of the inaugural 2021 program, Bunker Labs and JPMorgan Chase expanded the program’s capacity this year to include 68 business owners.

What is the CEOcircle?

CEOcircle’s mission is to facilitate an action-oriented, member-led network of entrepreneurs and small business owners, providing practical tools and resources, and highlighting inspirational stories that showcase the possibilities and accomplishments of the community. The year-long program provides military-connected businesses with targeted educational programming, networking via monthly group meetings, and financial expertise gained from a ten-week mentorship with JPMorgan Chase advisors. The program is aimed at Technology Disruptive Commerce and Diversified Industries. Technology Disruptive Commerce are early-stage companies with steep growth trajectories and disruptive product and service offerings in categories such as software, hardware, food, health and wellness, home and lifestyle, and pets. Diversified Industries include Manufacturers, Distributors, Service, and Government Contractors.

CEOcircle participants are selected via a rigorous evaluation process, which includes factors such as historical and projected growth, business strategy and openness to mentorship. In addition, all participating companies must:

  • Be led by a military veteran and/or military spouse (CEO, senior executive and/or controlling shareholder)
  • Have achieved an annual revenue of $1+ million or raised $5 million in capital
  • Show high growth potential via market size, industry, market saturation and significant traction

Jim O’Farrell, AMSG’s President & CEO said the following, “It has been an honor to be a part of Bunker Labs’ CEOcircle. As I near the end of this year-long cohort and reflect on my experience, it is hard to express how vital this program has been to my journey as the CEO of Advanced Management Strategies Group, Inc. (AMSG). Bunker Labs’ CEOcircle has provided invaluable tools, resources, and a community of Veteran entrepreneurs, for tackling everyday business challenges and developing strategic plans for growth. By soaking up the wisdom of the incredible guest speakers, and sharing with and learning from fellow cohort members, your CEOcircle programming has had a profound impact on me. I am truly looking forward to another year to learn and grow in this program.”
