between the Houston chapter of Entrepreneurs’ Organization and
Rice University’s VIBA (Rice Veterans in Business Association).
Veterans Business Battle gives veterans an opportunity to
pitch their business concept before a panel of investors—in the
vein of ABC’s hit show Shark Tank—and awards capital to the
most deserving ideas. A major draw for entrepreneurial-minded
veterans, the competition attracts over 100 submissions each
year. Finalists have the opportunity to attend workshops geared

with other entrepreneurs and consultants, and get feedback
and advice on their sales pitches. To date, the Veterans Business

that will make them much more efficient,” said Paul K. Fury, founder
and CEO of The Fury Group. “It’s a great organization that we’re
proud to support.”
