Event organizers’ goal is to highlight military service and bring the Houston region of veteran entrepreneurs & business owners together, raise awareness of veteran owned & operated businesses and all the amazing work they are doing. They encourage “All patriots & corporations in the region to shop & support veteran-owned companies. Veterans protect and build America.”
At the TVC VEP booth, one can learn about the current Veteran-Owned Business state legislation (Senate Bill 938) and all the benefits it provides to 100% veteran-owned businesses. Plus, information on all TVC programs will be available. These include cost free assistance with VA Claims, health care and education benefits.
