Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) – Dozens of local veterans got the chance to talk with local leaders about starting their own business at a first-of-its-kind event in Madison.

Bunker Labs hosted an event called “The Muster Madison" at the State Capitol on Friday.

Veterans learned from officials, lawmakers, and others in the business community through speakers, discussions, and an entrepreneurial pitch competition.

Gov. Walker also spoke to the vets about the importance of mentors for people in charge of businesses big and small.

“They had incredibly hard working, passionate, innovative founders, but they also had people that were giving them support and encouragement - sometimes when they even felt like they were the most down along the way - to get back up one more time and get back at it, “ said Gov. Walker.

Walker also noted the unemployment rate for veterans in Wisconsin is at 3.6%, which is lower than the overall rate.
