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.
I’m proud to be a part of Cleveland and I am very grateful for the opportunities this city gives its younger generation.
I liked the Veale Venture Challenge a lot, especially presenting my ideas to a huge audience and promoting my business to new people.
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 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
For my daughter, entering and winning the Business Plan Competition has better prepared her for life than most any other experience.
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 had a great experience and it was a lot of fun, especially the prizes. I got a lot of useful tips about public speaking. I definitely will convince my friends to participate next year.
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.
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.
The mentors were extremely helpful and provided critical insights on our thought processes, future plans, financials, and especially the structure of our slide deck.
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.
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.
Working in a group of students has shown me the value of teamwork.
My presentation skills and ability to deliver a business pitch have significantly improved.
I had a great time at the Veale Pitchfest and learned even more about entrepreneurship. Great opportunity!
I learned a ton through the Veale Venture Challenge and got to work with and learn from some very amazing individuals.
Through the Veale Forum, our young entrepreneurs are being exposed to new opportunities and resources while networking and establishing their place in the market.
I’ve wanted to major in business and accounting, but Veale Startup Week has widened my eyes to even more possibilities.
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.
