The Veale Venture Challenge was a huge success from start to finish.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 learned a lot from the entrepreneurs at the Veale Pitchfest and I got some useful skills I can use later on in life.
Even those who are not specifically interested in entrepreneurship would pick up valuable communication skills at Veale Pitchfest, especially through the team building exercises.
My presentation skills and ability to deliver a business pitch have significantly improved.
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 love the challenge of the Business Plan Competition and the energy from being inspired from working with other entrepreneurs.
By taking part in these programs my skills and understanding of the business world have deepened, giving me a head start on a business major in college.
I’ve wanted to major in business and accounting, but Veale Startup Week has widened my eyes to even more possibilities.
The Veale Venture Challenge and the entrepreneurship programming at my school provide tremendous opportunities for students like me.
E CITY has influenced me and my decisions about keeping my business going and taking business further into my major.
The mentors were extremely helpful and provided critical insights on our thought processes, future plans, financials, and especially the structure of our slide deck.
The Veale Venture Challenge was a great experience for me, especially hearing other students’ business presentations.
I loved the challenge, energy, and inspiration that came from putting the business plan together and working with other entrepreneurs.
