Twenty veteran-owned businesses were selected to participate in the 2019 annual Veterans Business Battle that will be held at Rice University in Houston, Texas on April 12-23.

The event is hosted by Veterans in Business Association, a student organization for veterans pursuing their MBA degrees at the university’s Jones Graduate School of Business. Since the competition started in 2015, more than $3 million has been invested in veteran-owned business in the form of partnerships, equity and loans.
