I love the challenge of the Business Plan Competition and the energy from being inspired from working with other entrepreneurs.
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.
The Veale Venture Challenge was a great experience for me, especially hearing other students’ business presentations.
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 mentors were phenomenal and gave us great advice for the Pitchfest and life in general.
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 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.
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 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.
I liked the Veale Venture Challenge a lot, especially presenting my ideas to a huge audience and promoting my business to new people.
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.
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’ve learned to never give up, even if you fail.
I’m proud to be a part of Cleveland and I am very grateful for the opportunities this city gives its younger generation.
E CITY has influenced me and my decisions about keeping my business going and taking business further into my major.
My presentation skills and ability to deliver a business pitch have significantly improved.
I realized while attending Veale Startup Week: The Business of 3D Printing that even a high schooler can come up with a million dollar idea.
From the introductions to the awards presentations, the Veale Pitchfest was great. The collaborations formed made the experience that much better.
The Veale Venture Challenge was a great experience and I am glad I did it. It was cool to meet all the accomplished men who came back to our school to coach us.
The Veale Venture Challenge and the entrepreneurship programming at my school provide tremendous opportunities for students like me.
