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.
For my daughter, entering and winning the Business Plan Competition has better prepared her for life than most any other experience.
The Veale Venture Challenge introduced me to mentors who would like to help me start my company, which would be very beneficial to my future.
I discovered my passion for business this year through my school’s entrepreneurship program. I learned valuable public speaking skills and met mentors. I plan to pursue my company, take more entrepreneurship classes, and learn all I can about business.
Veale Startup Week taught me I can design, build, and learn new things and have fun, make new friends, and be myself while doing it!
I loved the challenge, energy, and inspiration that came from putting the business plan together and working with other entrepreneurs.
The mentors were phenomenal and gave us great advice for the Pitchfest and life in general.
I would tell my friends to enter the Veale Pitchfest competition because there are so many things that can be learned from it, not just about business, but about life.
Executive Coaching Day before the Veale Venture Challenge finals was a great experience and set me on the path of wanting to be an entrepreneur.
I learned in class what it takes to get into business. I will always remember that. Without it, my business and I would not be where we are today.
It was really fun to connect with students from different schools and come together as a team to participate in all the Pitchfest activities.
The Veale Youth Entrepreneurship Forum has allowed Beaumont School to offer programs that would not otherwise be offered due to cost. Every student is eligible to participate no matter what her financial situation. The guidance and support we receive has encouraged us to explore new opportunities for our girls and do our best to reach every student at Beaumont, showing each girl the possibilities of business and entrepreneurship.
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.
The Forum has inspired me to be more purposeful in stepping out of the classroom and connecting with what’s happening in the entrepreneurship space beyond education.
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.
I’m proud to be a part of Cleveland and I am very grateful for the opportunities this city gives its younger generation.
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.
Learning how to pitch an idea was a great experience and a skill that I can use in business and in everyday life.
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.
The Veale Venture Challenge was a huge success from start to finish.
