Event: Rice University To Host Veterans Business Battle
Date & Time: April 13, 2018 (1 pm to 7 pm) | April 14, 2018 (8 am to 5:30)
Location: Valhalla, 6100 Main St, Houston, TX 77005
About This Event: Veterans Business Battle is the nation’s largest veteran-owned business competition. More than $2.5 million of investment offers have been extended since the competition began in 2015. It was founded by members of the Houston chapter of Entrepreneurs’ Organization, which acted as its host for its first three years, and members of VIBA, a student organization for MBA students at the Jones School of Business who are military veterans.
As part of the new role VIBA has in the competition, students in a graduate level course will analyze applications and partner with businesses to enhance their business plans.
Military veterans who own a business or who are starting one still have a chance to apply for the 2018 event. The application deadline was extended to March 1, 2018 in part to accommodate applicants from two new partners, although any qualified business can still apply by submitting a business plan online.
