Below are links to press announcements, mentions, and publications relating to the Veale Youth Entrepreneurship Forum.
At Veale Startup Week, I learned that it’s worth it to take risks and devote your time to something that may or may not work out in the end.
The Veale Venture Challenge and the entrepreneurship programming at my school provide tremendous opportunities for students like me.
The mentors were phenomenal and gave us great advice for the Pitchfest and life in general.
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 Pitchfest was a great exercise in teamwork and collaboration. It taught me how to effectively share my ideas with a large group and how to build on the great ideas of others.
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.
The mentors were extremely helpful and provided critical insights on our thought processes, future plans, financials, and especially the structure of our slide deck.
From the introductions to the awards presentations, the Veale Pitchfest was great. The collaborations formed made the experience that much better.
Through the Veale Forum, our young entrepreneurs are being exposed to new opportunities and resources while networking and establishing their place in the market.
Everything about the competition was amazing! The executive coaches were fantastic, and the location was amazing. The judges on the day of the competition were really great and provided quick and thoughtful feedback.
Even those who are not specifically interested in entrepreneurship would pick up valuable communication skills at Veale Pitchfest, especially through the team building exercises.
Learning how to pitch an idea was a great experience and a skill that I can use in business and in everyday life.
For my daughter, entering and winning the Business Plan Competition has better prepared her for life than most any other experience.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The Veale Venture Challenge was a huge success from start to finish.
I learned a ton through the Veale Venture Challenge and got to work with and learn from some very amazing individuals.
