On the front lines of tech: Bunker Labs ready to help veterans move from military service to startups
Not everyone has the work ethic to be an entrepreneur — the long hours, the commitment, the need to focus on the long game. But Travis Stanley-Jones thinks one segment of the population is particularly well suited to the startup grind: military veterans. "Veterans don't have a 9-to-5 mentality. You'll have months where you just work from 7 p.m. to 4 a.m. on night ops. That is a normal course of business," he said. "It's not a 9-to-5 job, and entrepreneurship is not a 9-to-5 job." Veterans' openness to "putting in the work for minimal pay with a long-term perspective makes veterans a better bet," said Stanley-Jones, who served with the U.S. Marine Corps for six years in the reserve, active duty and officer training.
