Partner With Us

Veterans Business Battle wouldn’t be successful without the individuals and businesses whose vision aligns with ours and makes our event possible.

Whether you’re interested in sponsoring our event, investing in the businesses at the competition or both, we encourage you to learn more about our mission and how you can help.

Investors

Veterans Business Battle delivers ample opportunities for our partners to both earn money on an investment while providing an opportunity to people who have made sacrifices for our country, and now want to take their skills and contribute to society as an entrepreneur. As an investor, you’ll be meeting with the best and brightest veterans with innovative technologies and sound business plans.

  • All applicants have served in one or more of the armed services, and some are graduates of prestigious institutions such as West Point and the Air Force Academy.
  • Some applicants are combat veterans and some have even served in top military programs such as Army Special Forces and Navy SEALs.
  • Our past applicant pool has included an array of leading-edge products and services across a variety of industries.

Sponsors

Veterans Business Battle couldn’t take place without the hard work of our team putting on the event that allows finalists to pitch their business ideas. We welcome a limited number of corporate and individual sponsors each year.

Sponsors are given the opportunity to attend the event, network with participants and set up information booths in our center while being highlighted at the event and in our marketing materials as a contributor.
