YouMeMine fertility startup wins Veterans Business Battle

[Houston, TX April 17, 2020] YouMeMine, a Los Angeles-based fertility startup that connects intended parents with egg donors and surrogates, won the 2020 Veterans Business Battle held at Rice University in Houston, Texas.

Veterans Business Battle is a national competition held annually in which veteran owned startups compete to win and receive funding and investment. VBB started in 2015 year, and draws in applications from across the country, in a similar format as the hit tv show Shark Tank. According to their website “With more than $3.5 million of investment offers extended thus far, it’s the largest veterans-only business competition in the country.”

Out of over one hundred companies, CEO Melanie Murphy and COO Leah Loh of YouMeMine clinched the win after a compelling pitch and a strong Q&A.

“Melanie has a company and a vision that is in complete alignment with her personal experience and expertise, which is a powerful combination. It is apparent how deeply passionate and dedicated she is to the success of the business and the cause of helping families.” Ian Truitner, Bunker Labs Mentor and CEO of RANDIAN. YouMeMine CEO Melanie Murphy shared, “We are grateful for the opportunity granted by Veterans Business Battle to compete against these incredible startups. I created YouMeMine after my own struggles navigating the complex process of searching for an egg donor. It is estimated that 50 to 80 million people worldwide struggle with infertility and with women veterans being three-times more likely to experience infertility, we felt that this was the perfect platform to showcase what YouMeMine is doing to improve the fertility outcomes of today’s families. We make finding an egg donor or surrogate simple.” With over 7,000 profiles, YouMeMine is now the world’s largest global egg donor and surrogate database in the world.
