Inside The Survival Business

Entrepreneur and developer Robert Vicino has dedicated his professional career to the business of survival. His will company, Vivos, has built a "members only" survival community with dozens of communal bunkers in anticipation of a major disaster. Each bunker provides enough floor area, with attic potential, to comfortably accommodate 10-20 people and the needed supplies, which would last for a year or more. Although pricing for membership may sound reasonable at a few tens of thousands of dollars, not everyone who applies gets accepted. Forbes spoke with Vicino to understand what makes the doomsday business so profitable and why companies like Vivos are more relevant now more than ever.
