I learned a lot from the entrepreneurs at the Veale Pitchfest and I got some useful skills I can use later on in life.
The executive coaches were enthusiastic and gave useful and critical suggestions to improve student plans and presentations! The judges at the final competition were very experienced and offered excellent questions to the students.
This program really exposed the dedication and hard work that the people of Northeast Ohio put into making their own independent businesses and giving back to the community.
The Veale Venture Challenge was incredible. I loved being in a setting with so many aspiring business professionals like myself. It taught me that it’s never too early to start your own business
At Veale Startup Week, I learned there is a much larger variety of business opportunities than I thought.
Through this program I made more contacts than I could have ever imagined and learned about the business community and all of the opportunities Cleveland has to offer.
Working in a group of students has shown me the value of teamwork.
I had a great time at the Veale Pitchfest and learned even more about entrepreneurship. Great opportunity!
Mr. Veale’s vision and generosity have inspired Beaumont students in the fields of entrepreneurship and science. The world is a better place because of his incredible talents and his dedication to the next generation.
It was a great experience and I am glad I did it. It was cool to talk to the accomplished men who came back to our school as coaches, mentors, and judges.
I really liked the Business Plan Competition and have encouraged all my friends to do it. Not only was I learning about being an entrepreneur, but I also got to work with real life entrepreneurs. I learned so much.
I learned a ton through the Veale Venture Challenge and got to work with and learn from some very amazing individuals.
The Veale Venture Challenge dramatically helped with public speaking, which is something you need now in high school, but especially later on in your career.
The Veale Venture Challenge was a great experience for me, especially hearing other students’ business presentations.
It was a lot of fun watching and listening to the other student entrepreneurs at the Veale Venture Challenge finals. For me, presenting on stage in front of more than one hundred people was a bit more “real” and much scarier than presenting in front of a few judges at school.
I’m proud to be a part of Cleveland and I am very grateful for the opportunities this city gives its younger generation.
I’ve wanted to major in business and accounting, but Veale Startup Week has widened my eyes to even more possibilities.
I knew I wanted to be an engineer, but now I know I want to be an engineer that works on sports equipment, which I can prototype with a 3D printer. Thanks Veale Startup Week!
I keep coming back to the Young Entrepreneur Market and it’s one of my favorite things to do. I love seeing a customer’s face light up and getting satisfaction from selling something. I love that feeling.
The Veale Venture Challenge showed me the diversity of people and ideas throughout Northeast Ohio and that there are many opportunities for individuals of all ages.
