Helping Veterans and Military Spouses Unlock Business Credit
Access to capital is the lifeline for any business owner, but 63% of military-connected owners say their credit score is a barrier to funding. That’s why Bunker Labs and Hello Alice are partnering to unlock business credit, financial education, and capital access for long-term financial success for veterans and military spouses.
The Hello Alice Small Business Mastercard® is a credit card made specifically for small businesses. With on-time payments, military owners can unlock exclusive access to 1:1 business coaching sessions, free virtual workshops and events, no annual fees, unlimited cashback, and more. As an added bonus, for every Bunker Labs community member approved for a card, Hello Alice will donate $25 to help Bunker Labs continue serving entrepreneurs like you.
Is Your Personal Credit Holding You Back From Access to Capital? You Aren’t Alone.
Only to be used when you can pay the balance, a business credit card helps military owners reduce reliance on personal credit and invest in their businesses.
At Bunker Labs, we are building robust networks that lead to capital access. That’s why we are committed to working with Hello Alice on solutions that are rooted in financial literacy while simultaneously unlocking access for veterans and military spouse entrepreneurs that have given so much to our country.”

Why Veterans and Military Spouses Need Business Credit
When we asked veterans and military spouses how a business credit card would benefit their business:
Research shows that factors such as lack of credit history in addition to frequent moves and employment changes contribute to many veterans and military spouses becoming less attractive lending candidates. 43% of military-connected owners reported being denied for a traditional bank loan— significantly higher than the 34% denial rate for non-military owners. A business credit card can help entrepreneurs build or rebuild their credit over time and unlock opportunities as they grow.
With the Hello Alice Small Business Mastercard®, owners get a card that grows with their business while delivering best-in-class perks and rewards.
